The holiday season is upon us. Travel will increase and many will choose to travel to the North Bay: San Francisco, Marin County and Sonoma County. If you possibly can, give the environment a break. Over half of all greenhouse gases come from autos and trucks. So leave your car at home. Travel by train not airline. Avail yourself of the Bay Areas transit to make connections: BART, SMART, CalTrain, ACE, Capital Corridor, Amtrak. Ask your relatives to pick you up at the station or use local buses. Have fun planning your trip online and, please, let us know what problems you encounter. We will lobby transit agencies to correct those problems. And have a happy car-free holiday!
