Resumen: Las reformas económicas hacia la ‘normalización’ de las relaciones con los Estados Unidos ha suscitado la esperanza de un aumento de los propietarios de autos en Cuba. Sin embargo, la experiencia internacional ofrece vasta evidencia del gran costo de esta dependencia en las ciudades. Siguiendo las enseñanzas de las tendencias globales, La Habana puede evitar errores y crecer a partir de sus únicas fortalezas. Una visión política clara basada en el ‘acceso y habitabilidad’ podría convertir a La Habana en líder mundial en términos de sostenibilidad y movilidad urbana socialmente equitativa.

[English, translation]
Economic reforms and moves towards ‘normalization’ of relations with the US have raised hopes for increasing car ownership in Cuba. But international experience provides plenty of evidence of the huge costs of private car dependency in cities. By learning from global trends in urban mobility, Havana can avoid mistakes and build on its unique strengths. A clear policy vision based on ‘access and liveability’ could enable Havana to become a leader in the world in terms of sustainable and socially equitable urban mobility.
