We're #18 !

In the GreenApple Canada Smart Transportation Rankings.

While multi-modal strategies remain nothing more than buzzwords, other cities in Canada are moving forward. Windsor suffers in the rankings due to air quality issues that are mostly out of our control, but they are not the only thing dragging us down.

The report focused on four areas:
• Transportation policy such as public transit infrastructure, expenditure and transit ridership
• Air quality measures such as ozone and carbon dioxide emission levels;
• Public policies such as anti-idling laws and trip reduction programs; and
• Technology adaptation such as the total number of hybrid or alternative fuel vehicles (AFVs) in the public transit and municipal fleets.
