Green Works LIFE
Transportation is one of the the largest causes of green house gas emissions. Although public transportation may not be an option for everyone there are plenty of other ways to reduce your footprint.
Driving Green: Increase you MPG, save gas and save money with these tips from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection.
Electric Vehicles: ChargePoint America Kickoff at Orlando City Hall
Carpool and Vanpool: By engaging in a program sponsored by LYNX or starting one of your own, carpooling and vanpooling reduces the amount of cars on the road and allow you to commute with neighbors without sacrificing flexibility and comfort. Your place of work could even financially benefit from a program. Visit LYNX Commuter Programs for more information on how to get started.
