London Wins Sustainable Transport Award

Us and Paris have won an award for "visionary achievements in sustainable transportation and urban livability". Yes, such an award could only come from the US of A and it is courtesy of their Institute for Transportation and Development Policy that we are sharing such an honour.

Ken's C-Charge scheme and best efforts to get us all on our bikes impressed the judges whilst we imagine our Parisian pals' fabulous Velib scheme won them admiration (come on, Ken - we want it too!).

To get the green gongs we had to beat off competition from Guatemala City, Eugene in Oregon and Pereira, Colombia. Which makes it sound a little unfair, to be honest.

But a prize is a prize, even when it's shared. Yay us!
