​Not all transportation requires a car! Core strategy #4 of the A2ZERO Plan is to “Reduce the Miles We Travel in Our Vehicles by at least 50%". There are numerous ways to get around the city that do not involve a car: 

  • Try non-motorized options like walking, biking, rollerblading, or using a scooter. Not only do these options have zero emissions, they're also extremely affordable, good for your health, and help connect you with your community and surroundings. No more paying for parking with this option!
  • Reduce the commute all together and explore tele-working. 
  • If you have to drive, take group/shared rides to reduce the number of vehicles on the road.
