C40 Cities Protecting the Mass Transit

On 31 March 2021, the C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group – a group of 97 cities around the world – came together to demand historic levels of investment in public transport to ensure a green and just recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. Underpinning this campaign was research carried out over a period of just two months by WSP’s team in Canada, which provided a solid evidence base to support the mayors of these cities in arguing for an injection of funds by national governments into their mass transit infrastructure. 

We are trying to make the case for mass transit as relatable as possible for different regions around the world, and hope that the message resonates with senior decision makers, so this issue won’t be swept under the rug
