As a New Yorker, I feel lucky to have so many transportation alternatives at my disposal. Subway, Bus, Bike, Ride Share programs. Even walking are all easy ways to navigate the city. And while, it may require some planning and negotiating, it's worth investigating public transit alternatives in your area. Why?
If one in 10 Americans used public transportation daily, it would reduce U.S. reliance on foreign oil by 40%.
It's 7x safer to ride a bus than drive in your own automobile.
It would produce a 20% reduction in carbon monoxide emissions if one in five Americans rode public transportation daily.
