Sustainable Urban Transportation: A Winning Strategy for Canada

Efficient urban transportation networks are one of the essential elements that make cities successful. They are key to business investment and growth because companies depend on the efficient movement of workers and goods around urban areas to maintain their competitiveness. Integrated mass transit systems are also vital for healthy urban environments and strong communities. Sustainable Urban Transportation: A Winning Strategy for Canada examines issues such as urbanization, suburban sprawl, land use and automobile dependence. The briefing also looks at the massive public infrastructure investment needed to accommodate growth, the need to enhance urban freight transportation and the need for high-speed rail transit in two heavily traveled inter-city corridors. Twelve recommendations are made for improving urban transportation.
