Public Transportation in Your Community

Communities who choose to invest in public transportation reduce the nation’s carbon emissions by 37 million metric tons annually- equivalent to the electricity used by 4.9 million households. To achieve a similar reduction in carbon emissions, every household in New York City, Washington, D.C., Atlanta, Denver and Los Angeles combined would have to completely stop using electricity.

If your community doesn't have many public transportation options, ask for more! Go to a city council meeting or write your city officials and tell them that good public transportation options are important to you, and good for the community.  Find public transportation in your area at the American Public Transportation Association.
