Sustainable transportation means finding ways to travel that are good for the environment and help create a healthier Earth for everyone. It's all about using ways to get around that don't cause pollution or harm nature. Essentially, the goal of sustainable transportation is to lower greenhouse gas emissions caused by vehicle usage.
Green transportation or alternative transportation are also ways to refer to sustainable transportation. At Ride Together Pierce, we champion the use of sustainable modes of transportation that help lower harmful carbon emissions while reducing the congestion of traffic on our roads.
By switching from single-occupancy vehicle travel to more sustainable modes, such as carpooling, vanpooling, walking, biking, telework, working from home, and public transit like bus, train, and light rail, we help create less congestion on the freeways and contribute to healthier, cleaner communities.
