Project Description

Take the bus, train or ferry whenever you can.

Public transit reduces pollution and traffic congestions — and can save you time and money. It also gives mobility to those who cannot drive.

As more transit fleets switch over to cleaner vehicles, public transportation is becoming even more sustainable.


Taking the bus, train, or other public transit can help you:

  • Reduce air pollution and CO2 emissions

  • Avoid traffic congestion and reduce stress

  • Save money on gas and parking fees

  • Stay healthy by walking to and from bus and train stops

  • You can do your work, read, relax while others drive
