How about getting to anywhere you want in 15 minutes only, within your neighborhood.
Paris en Commun’s 15-minute city concept. From the top, clockwise, the headings read: Learn, Work, Share and Re-Use, Get Supplies, Take the Air, Self-Develop and Connect, Look After Yourself, Get Around, Spend, and Eat Well.

Early in February this year, Mayor of Paris, Anne Hidalgo said that each resident in the city should meet their needs within a short walk or bike ride.
And after the city lock-down happened in Paris, the "15-minute City" and reducing the car usage became a great reopening plan, to avoid crowding on the public transportation and minimize the pollution that was considered a link to COVID-19 in the Mayor's opinion. Also, reducing car usage is one of the city's plans, and that will be achieved by taking away surfaces from car lanes and repurposing it as public community spaces.
