    Yesterday was Earth Day. It was uplifting to see so many posts about it. It was great to see Capital Metro launching a new green fleet.

    Public transportation really is great in Austin! When I take the bus I save money, stress, emissions, and quality time.
  • Reflection Question
    Transport Try Carpooling
    List some of the places you frequent often (work, grocery store, natural areas). Could you choose one or two days a week to schedule driving with a friend, neighbor or co-worker to these places?

    Work, grocery store, home. Yes, I do this almost every day. My husband and I ride to school/work together. Since he has to stay late, I ride the bus home. We save on emissions, gas, and mileage....and money!
