Transportation is the largest contributor to greenhouse gas emissions - a great reason to do more Undriving! Of course, there are lots of other reasons, too - better health, more exercise, connection with nature, greater sense of community - and as one Undriver put it, "Living the example I want my daughter to see."So what's YOUR latest Undriving Pledge?
Even if we bus or bike every day, or don't have a car, there's always more we can do to reduce car use. Take a non-bus-riding friend on a transit trip and show her the ropes; help a friend fix his bike or find a good used one; or get involved something that makes it easier for others to Undrive too, like Seattle's Neighborhood Greenways
effort. Lots more ideas here! Activism
counts, too - read on.
