Public Transportation and Car/Ride sharing

In the US, car travel accounts for the largest share of transportation-related greenhouse gas emissions (GHG).  It also contributes to air pollution and negative health effects.  About 75% of car trips are single-occupant. To reduce the negative effects of cars, ridesharing and public transit are good options to help mitigate GHG emission and are more cost-effective than driving your own car.

Green Mountain Transit - Green Mountain Transit provides over 2.5 million trips each year, mostly in the greater Burlington area but also through its inter-regional connections via the Link Express.

Car sharing is an affordable alternative to owning a car that is easy. Car Share Vermont  is our local car sharing organization.
