Today TheCityFix is celebrating. We are ranked as one of the Top 20 Websites for Urban Planners for the second year in a row. This is a great compliment to our authors and contributors. We want to learn more from you on which topics you want covered, and want to keep you engaged by inviting you to contribute or comment, so that we stay at the forefront of environmentally sound practices and sustainable development in cities.
Since our launch in 2007, we have been working to provide you with up-to-date news, cutting edge ideas, and effective policies for sustainable urban development. Our contributors are transport experts and specialists from around the world, including engineers, entrepreneurs, urban planners, and researchers, who explore environmentally and socially responsible ways to make cities better places to live.
Our most popular posts this past month included The car is the cigarette of the future, which discussed Jaime Learner’s bold vision for the future, where personal cars will be socially stigmatized; a post which trumpeted Lahore’s new metro bus system– the first mass public transit system in Pakistan; and our Friday Fun Infographic: How our cities are shaping us, showing the impacts of urban sprawl on our health. We’re delighted to cover such a wide range of topics in sustainable urban development for a knowledgeable and engaged readership.
The ranking was established by Global Site Plans, an environmental branding firm, with the assistance of Alexa International Rankings.
