Because of the infrastructure of this city’s downtown center, citizens may live and work there.

For many people who reside downtown and have shorter commutes to work, this has resulted in more environmentally friendly modes of transportation, such as bicycles and public transportation. All of these are positive moves for a city trying to be one of the greenest on earth.
