Using public transportation is often a greener alternative than driving solo in your car. Insist on greener mass transit. Here are some things you can do:
1. Contact area representatives to suggest upgrading diesel buses to biodiesel or Liquified Natural Gas.
2. Write to your local paper, meet with local government officials, join an advocacy group. Let it be known that you want positive change.
3. Commit to substituting mass transit for at least one solo car trip per week, if possible.
