  • biking;
  • taking public transit;
  • carpooling;

Reasons to Get There Green

 

Transportation represents the largest source of New York State's greenhouse gas emissions and the largest part of most New Yorker's personal carbon footprint as well. This is why it is critically important that we all lower our emissions from transportation in order to meet our nation-leading economy-wide greenhouse gas emission reduction goals of 40% of 1990 emission levels by 2030, 85% by 2050, and ultimately net-zero.
