Abstract
In the present study, taking the opportunity of a positive side of the economic crisis on
“redesigning” of the urban space, we consider on the release of public space from roadside parking
and seek dynamics of transformation on transport habits for the inhabitants of the municipality of
Zografou in Athens. Following analysis of quantitative data, a comparison of the transit pre-crisis
everyday life of the Zografou municipality inhabitants with other municipalities of Attica region
indicates that the municipality of Zografou has the highest density of parked vehicles and
simultaneously only one third of them is been moved daily. The above paradox in synergy with
economic, energy and environmental crisis in a municipality which has a few open spaces in the
urban web can be turned into a favorable factor in upgrading the urban environment through a
localized application of car sharing and car free housing. A network of public-use cars satisfies the
transport requirements and releases 80% of the roadside parking area in association with the
existing private sheltered parking places.
The above condition is seen as a transition, with the advantage of the possibility of local application
and low financial requirements due to the existing transport infrastructure, to public transport as the
dominant means of transport. Otherwise, this condition could be fragile with potential reverse shift
from collective to individual mobility. Taking into consideration the route’s social self-worth of an
urban trip and the encased spatial presence of the transport network in the destination and origin of
it, the consequences of the present proposal are directly related to urban everyday life as well as to
ethnic, local, domestic and environmental economy but also indirectly through the participation in
the quiver of arguments for a more compact Athens city.
