Year Of Sustainable Transportation

Every year leading up to 2019, Cleveland will focus on one of the key areas fundamental to a sustainable city. The Sustainable Cleveland Celebration Years are designed to be accessible to all members of the community — households, neighborhoods, businesses, and institutions can all participate, either in collaboration or independently.


In 2016, we are celebrating the Year of Sustainable Transportation by supporting healthier forms of moving around. There are many actions Clevelanders can take at home, at work and in the community to help grow sustainable transportation. Actions include biking, walking, taking transit, carpooling, car sharing and much more! Not only do these actions reduce roadway congestion and carbon emissions, they also provide health benefits and improved air quality.
