We know that not many people are ready to permanently park their car and start using transit for all their travel. But here are a few tips that might help you loosen the grip on your steering wheel, and help you begin using transit every now and then. A little change by many can result in positive changes in carbon emissions, congestion, and quality of life.
1. Try using your car just one or two days a week. Use these days to run errands before or after work, or at lunch.
2. Are you dropping kids off at daycare? Find out if your daycare is on a bus route (many are) and see if you can leave your car there for the day, and take the bus from your daycare to your work location, and back again at the end of the day.
