Public Transportation

If you have access to it, public transportation is an important step in greening your life, because it cuts down on your environmental impact. Mass transit options transport larger numbers of people in a smaller, more efficient manner than solitary commuting by personal vehicle. Many cities have great bus and rail transport systems for the residents' convenience and decreased carbon footprint. (Photo: Flickr)
