2. Embrace transit
Did you know that a 40-mile roundtrip commute can produce more than 150 pounds of CO2 per week?
Using public transit dramatically reduces your carbon footprint. And it can yield big cost-savings, too – about 50 percent when compared to driving alone, according to Georgia Commute Options’ Save Your Commute tool.
Explore Georgia Commute Options to learn about alternate commuting options, such as carpooling, vanpooling and teleworking. And log on to ATLTransit.org to navigate the region’s transit providers, from suburban express buses to city rail and bus routes.
You’ll save dollars and stress while helping improve our region’s air quality.
