4 Inspirations for Sustainable Transport from Rio de Janeiro

Rio de Janeiro has long been known for its traffic congestion and lack of affordable, accessible public transit. Now, in celebration of its 450th anniversary and as the host city of the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Summer Olympic Games, city leaders are beginning to transform Rio's image into one of a sustainable mobility leader.

MEXICO CITY (March 17, 2015)— Today, Mexico City’s Head of Government Miguel Ángel Mancera announced a new partnership with World Resources Institute, World Bank, CAF, and Inter-American Development Bank to invest $150 million in expanding and modernizing sustainable transport systems. The announcement comes after a 60 day period of discussions on the future of Mexico City’s sustainable transport solutions kicked-off on the margins of WRI’s event Transforming Transportation 2015.
