Pune Honored at Sustainable Transport Award Ceremony in Washington, DC

On Tuesday, January 14, the cities of Pune, India and Jakarta, Indonesia were honored in the Sustainable Transport Award Ceremony in Washington, DC.

“In a world that is focused on “new-mo”, Pune won this award for its “slow-mo”. By embracing the basics of transport, walking, and cycling, Pune is demonstrating that these are the fundamental things you need in a city. We see this award as incentive for Pune to improve, to keep improving, and as a recognition of the work that many Indian cities are doing.”

-Shreya Gadepalli, ITDP India

About the Sustainable Transport Award

Each year, ITDP and the Sustainable Transport Award Committee select 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. The winning city and honorable mentions are honored at a ceremony in Washington, DC in January. The winning city hosts MOBILIZE later on that year.  Next year (2020), MOBILIZE will be held in Pune, India.

Nominations for the 2020 Sustainable Transport Award are now closed.
