|60% of greenhouse gas emissions come from vehicles on the road. Each day tens of thousands of North Bay commuters who ride public transit are reducing CO2 emissions and protecting our global climate.
SMART riders reduced greenhouse gas emissions by 33% compared to completing the same trip in a car. To-date, SMART riders have prevented 8.1 million pounds of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from being released into the environment—and they multiplied this reduction by connecting to and from the train station using low emission forms of transportation such as walking, biking and other public transit.
You can be a Green Commuter too! Ditch your car, if only for one day a week, and take public transit. It’s easy, economical and a great way to reduce your carbon footprint.
