Simple Things That You Can Do - Right Now
Don’t idle your car when not driving
Carpool when you can
Walk/use alternative transit - public transportation/bicycle/walk (60% of car trips are 3 miles or less - next time, take a bike, walk or scooter when you run an errand in your neighborhood)
Take the EV Pledge - pledge that when you replace your vehicle you'll replace it with an EV
Benefits of Changing Your Transportation Habits:

•Taking public transportation reduces air pollution.
•Public transportation improves commuters' productivity.
•Save money by not filling up at the gas pump.
If you are moving, rather than driving you are increasing your daily exercise, saving money on fuel costs, and the local environment benefits! Making it a win-win-win proposition!
