Transport is a crucial actor as a means of advancing socioeconomic development. Moreover, it contributes to the overall sustainability strategy by encouraging public transportation as part of sustainable mobility. Subways, buses, and trains have all been improved to make them more efficient and accessible as part of the city's numerous initiatives to promote the use of public transportation.
