By using transit, you help the environment by reducing emissions which are a significant cause of poor air and water quality?
Transportation in the United States is responsible for 29 percent of greenhouse gas emissions. The use of public transportation reduces greenhouse gas emissions along with the emissions caused by gridlock and also saves fuel. Data demonstrate that public transportation produces significantly lower greenhouse gas emissions per passenger mile than private vehicles. (Source: Federal Transit Administration)
