The Bay Area has many transit options. Use them and you will save gas, money and stress.
Walk or ride
Walking or riding a bike to commute or run errands saves gas and money AND improves your health too!
Link your trips
Group your errands. You'll save gas and time by eliminating extra trips.
Idling wastes gasoline, money and affects your health. When you're waiting in lines, like at the drive-thru, gas station or at school pick-up, consider turning off your vehicle. Cars idling at school means unhealthy air for children. Always make an effort to turn off your vehicle, rather than idling.
Minimize pedal and break changes with a steady speedometer and improve gas mileage by 33 percent on the highway!
Select safe products
Use non-toxic, non-aerosol cleaning and beauty products to improve indoor air quality and your health.
Reducing electricity use saves money and the environment. Use energy-efficient bulbs and powerstrips for appliances and electronics. Turn them off when you're not using them.
The shorter the trip to get to you, the less gas it requires.
