We believe in utilizing innovative transit solutions to minimize and ultimately eliminate greenhouse gas emissions from the transportation sector.
The Policy Details
The transportation sector is the largest source of greenhouse gas emissions in the U.S. Since we’re all using vehicles to get ourselves to the lift lines, singletrack and crags, we think there ought to be affordable options to get to the places we love without emitting carbon. Whether that means working on fuel efficiency, fuel economy standards, public transportation, electric vehicle availability and infrastructure or credit reform, we’re trying to bring as many transportation solutions to the table as possible.
We all have a carbon footprint, but that doesn’t mean we can’t be advocates to change the system.
