San Francisco loves trains and recycling ...

San Francisco ranks No. 1 for taking public transportation. Other areas where the city comes out on top:

  • Recycling glass, metal and plastics regularly
  • Never driving a car for trips that are less than one mile from home
  • Using reclosable bags and tinfoil
  • Participating in the city’s sustainability and environmental programs
