With transportation costs on the rise, there is a strong incentive, both economic and environmental, for making smarter choices when it comes to stepping into that car or plane.

By improving the fuel efficiency of your vehicle and using less-polluting methods for your commute or vacation, you can significantly decrease the time, money, and fossil fuels used for transportation. For example, if the fuel efficiency of all US passenger cars improved by 5 mpg, over 13 billion gallons of gas would be saved annually—equivalent to the CO2 emissions of over 11 million homes in a year.[1][2]

Additional ways to reduce your travel footprint include participating in employer commuter programs, reducing business travel, and choosing sustainable vacations.
