Sustainable Transport Award

11th Annual

Sustainable Transport Award

The Sustainable Transport Award recognizes profound leadership, vision, and achievement in sustainable transportation and urban livability. Established in 2005, the Sustainable Transport Award has been given annually to a city that has implemented innovative sustainable transportation projects in the preceding year. These strategies improve mobility for all residents, reduce transportation greenhouse and air pollution emissions, and improve safety and access for cyclists and pedestrians. Finalists are selected by an international committee of development experts and organizations working on sustainable transport.

Winners of the STA are an elite group of international cities that continue to be leaders in the field. Spanning a range of sizes, these cities prove that through vision, bold leadership, and innovative solutions, cities can become more sustainable, equitable, and livable. The STA focuses attention on these successes, highlighting their achievements and inspiring cities around the world to implement transport solutions of their own.
