          Abstract

          It has been established that carfree streets in Central Business Districts (CBDs) are linked to more livable urban environments, but most studies on this topic have concentrated on developed countries. Based on data from 399 questionnaires and interviews with 6 key stakeholders, this study presents perceived safety, comfort, and connectivity of users across three street types: a typical car street, a one-way street, and a carfree street in Nairobi Kenya. Further, this study discusses the relationship between approaches of key decision makers such as the City Government and business owners against the priorities of day-to-day pedestrians.
