"Mexico City Makes Dramatic Recovery From Gridlock"

"Little more than a year after making it to the top of IBM's list of worst commuter cities, Mexico City has returned to the urban transit spotlight -- this time at the receiving end of international praise."

"During 2012, the city underwent major changes directed at developing a more sustainable transportation system, earning this year's Sustainable Transport Award from the Institute for Transportation and Development Policy (ITDP).

'Mexico City was like a patient sick with heart disease, its streets were some of the most congested in the world,' Walter Hook, CEO of ITDP, said in a statement announcing the prize. ITDP is a nonprofit organization based in New York City with offices around the world."
