Mass transit allows for the movement of people quickly and efficiently. New ways of transporting people decreases carbon emissions and connects large groups of people to their city. Transportation hubs create opportunities for increased residential, business and retail density as it allows many people to access the area easily and efficiently. It also decreases the neighbourhood residents’ need for individual vehicles. Public transportation reduces carbon emissions by limiting the amount of vehicles on the road, thereby contributing to energy conservation.
PEDESTRIAN & BIKE FRIENDLY CITIES
A city that provides its residents with safe walking and biking opportunities benefits the environment by decreasing the reliance on cars while contributing to the health and enjoyment of the city’s residents. Safe, walkable streets enhance a city’s cultural and social vitality. Increased foot traffic along neighbourhood streets promotes safety and brings life to the street. Small businesses, galleries and restaurants have the opportunity to thrive when easily accessed by foot and public transportation.
