Stockholm: Ranked 3rd Worldwide for Best Public Transportation Systems!

At the top of Sweden’s state agenda is environmental preservation, which is why Sweden has advanced recycling systems. Concurrently, it continually seeks new ways to incorporate sustainable practices into citizens’ lives to protect the environment.

Sweden boasts one of the best Mass Transit Systems, as reflected by Stockholm’s position in the World Economic Forum’s global ranking.

The Swedish capital completes the top trio globally, alongside Hong Kong and Zurich, for cities with the best public transportation systems in terms of environmental protection.

This is because trains and buses in Stockholm have been using 100% renewable energy sources since 2017!

According to the World Economic Forum’s data, the growing population in cities and their transportation networks puts great pressure on finding ways to make the environment cleaner and healthier.

Urban populations will expand by nearly 700 million globally by 2023, reaching a total of 5.2 billion, according to the United Nations. This means that approximately 60% of the world’s population will live in cities, up from 57% in 2021.
