GreenTools for Transportation & Connectivity

Increase Connectivity and Green Your City Transportation Network

Toolkit2 iconSustainable Cities offer diverse transportation modes that encourage physical activity and preclude individual car trips. Local governments can build integrated networks of pedestrian walkways, streets and roadways, public transit (buses and trains), and bicycle and non-motorized vehicles. Public-private partnerships are essential for creating both places and connections that enable and encourage non-motorized transit.

Additionally, Sustainable Cities can save money and stimulate investment by focusing on green transportation. Strategies include innovative fleet management, tailoring land-use policies to favor public transit and reduce vehicle miles traveled (VMT) and associated road maintenance, and attracting investment through business and residential development. Diverse, integrated transportation networks are the arteries of Sustainable Cities.
