The Transportation Sector

Solutions Journalism Network

Solutions journalism is news about how communities and organizations are responding to social and environmental problems. This collection contains solutions stories that highlight how technology companies, governments, and NGO's are helping spur a cultural shift in the way consumers think about fossil-fuel driven modes of transportation.  Many cities, like New York City, have pedestrianized portions of their city in order to make traffic patterns more efficient and keep pedestrians safe. The Philadelphia Unemployment Project addressed transportation limitation issues by developing a ride sharing program for those who work in the city. Citizens of Los Angeles voted to implement a tax that supports the development of a citywide rail system. In the American West, private bus companies are beginning to offer budget- and environment-conscious travelers an alternative to cars.
