Successful Green Transportation Infrastructure Case Studies and Their Application to Westfield, MA
Green transportation infrastructure in suburban and rural America is significantly less established than green transportation in some major cities around the world. A large percentage of global emissions are a result of transportation in the United States. If global emissions are not reduced very quickly, the world is facing a climate disaster. This project analyzed three different case studies of cities and towns in Europe and the United States for their green transportation infrastructure, as well as the City of Westfield’s green transportation infrastructure. The findings from the case study analysis will be used to create a hypothetical green transportation plan for Westfield, MA. Westfield could use improved green transportation to benefit the connectivity of the town and to reduce the carbon emissions of Westfield residents and those in nearby towns.
