For the second year in a row, Mexico City has shown that being green can pay. Last week the city was awarded 200,000 Euros from the Spanish Carbon Fund for reducing carbon emissions as part of MetroBus, a bus rapid transit system that has reduced the number of polluting cars on the road.
Metrobús was Launched on June 19, 2005, and carries an average of 260,000 passengers a day. After more than two years in operation, it has carried more than 200 million passengers.
