Reduce Private Transportation and Invest in Public Transit

A recent article published by Scientific America discovered that if cities where to invest towards public transportation and other alternatives it could greatly reduce the amount of carbon emissions produced by urban passenger transport. In Toronto an estimated 2,838,506  tonnes of Green House Gases (GHG) are produced by passenger vehicles. The article goes in depth and analyses both the investment and savings this will create towards cities. More importantly, the article examines the massive growth of cities and the car is linked to inequality.

I highly recommend you read the article to learn more information on urban sustainability.
