C-U named one of NRDC Top 15 Smarter Cities

The Natural Resources Defense Council’s Smarter Cities project has named fifteen U.S. metropolitan regions leaders in transportation innovation and smart transit.

In the Champaign-Urbana metro region in Illinois, the focus of the transit district is on getting people out of their cars by offering a full palette of options. Since 2001, the district has been working to transform the region into a multimodal community, where residents can comfortably walk, bike, or bus to local destinations and leave their cars at home. The effort has helped the region land a position among Smarter Cities’ top 15 smarter metro regions in the country for transportation.
