SEATTLE (Reuters) – Brazil’s coastal city Fortaleza has won an international award for cutting traffic deaths and making major investments in bus and cycle lanes despite a biting recession. The city received the award from the Institute for Transportation and Development Policy, a New York-based think tank, for making it safer to walk, drive and ride bikes in a time of budget constraints. The city of 2.6 million, installed 108 km of priority bus lanes and 225 km of cycling routes to serve a popular bike share system since 2014.
