Seattle, out of all major cities in the U.S., has experienced the biggest jump in bus ridership in the recent past. The public transit authority has been praised for its commitment to sustainability. As half of greenhouse emissions come from different means of transportation in Washington state, it is crucial to reduce those by incentivizing bus ridership.
To get there, Seattle has implemented some of only a few transit malls in the United States to restrict automobile use, and make it easier for buses to trade off pick-ups through what is called weaving. 100 percent of the city’s bus fleet is going to be hybrid or electric by 2018 as well.CityLAB
