Boston ranks among the greenest

A surprising ranking helped contribute to Boston being named as one of the “greenest” cities in the country. The numbers from a new WalletHub analysis1:

  • Though it may come as a shock‚ the Hub is fifth in lowest percentage of commuters who drive.
  • Overall‚ Boston ranks ninth in transportation‚ which includes categories like miles of bicycle lanes and alternative fuel stations per capita. The city also took ninth in environmental‚ which covers air quality‚ water quality‚ and share of green hotels.
  • Boston is 15th out of the 100 cities studied. San Francisco tops the list.

The study’s complete results are here.
