Go Green

Did you know that transportation exhaust from our cars, trucks, ships, planes and trains accounts for nearly half of the greenhouse gas emissions in the San Francisco Bay Area? All of us need to get around, but there are choices we can make that will help protect our climate. You can be a part of the solution by driving less and choosing alternative modes of travel.

 

Rideshare

Want to green your commute? Ridesharing is 2-6 people in a carpool or 7-15 people in a vanpool. It’s a green travel alternative because you help reduce the total number of cars on the road. You save time and money and the earth gets a breath of fresh air.
