Moving Right Along in Mexico
If you’ve ever driven through Mexico City, you may already know that our southern neighbor has some of the world’s worst traffic jams. The new National Network for Sustainable Urban Mobility, however, hopes to make Mexican ground travel a little less frustrating.
The network created a partnership between FedEx and EMBARQ (the World Resources Institute Center for Sustainable Transport) to develop transportation solutions that will reduce congestion and improve quality of life in Mexican cities. FedEx plans to provide $500,000 over two years to EMBARQ to fund the project, and the Center for Sustainable Transport in Mexico will help carry out some of the initiatives, which may include improved mass transit, walking and cycling paths, and traffic-safety education.
