USE ALTERNATIVE TRANSPORTATION

 

Choosing to use alternative transportation options can have more benefits than just reducing your carbon footprint.  You can save money on gas, car repairs, insurance and even car payments if you choose to go without a car altogether.  Plus, the more you choose to walk or bike instead of getting in the car, even if it's just to the bus stop, the additional exercise improves your health.

Not sure how you'd get around without your car?  Here's some information on transportation options in Western New York:

Why not Carpool?  Take turns driving and save money on gas while reducing wear and tear on your car.  Visit Good Going WNY for carpool and other alternative transportation information.

Use NFTA-Metro.  Leave your car at home or park and ride.  Visit www.nfta.com/nfta/metro for more information.

Bike-it!  Don't have a bicycle or only want to bike-it one-way?  Visit Buffalo Blue Bicycle for area bicycling options.

Try Buffalo CarShare.  What's that you say?  For those not familiar with the concept, car sharing programs allow members to rent a car at an hourly rate for things like grocery shopping or other errands that are cumbersome when you rely on walking, biking, or public transportation.  The Buffalo CarShare program was designed to provide Western New Yorkers a convenient, reliable and affordable alternative to car ownership.  Visit http://www.buffalocarshare.org/ for more information about the program.

Just Walk . . .  Did you know Google Maps provides directions for driving, NFTA-Metro and walking, so you'll always know how to get there!

CANCEL UNWANTED SUBSCRIPTIONS
This month's tip is from Ed Dudkowski of John W. Danforth Company, August's Green Tip submission winner. Ed wrote: `Cancel subscriptions to unwanted trade publications, catalogs and magazines. I found that my recycle bin was constantly being filled with publications that I did not request. Last month I took the time to cancel four of these. Think of all the resources that could be saved if each one of us cancelled just a single publication. All of the energy and raw materials used to publish, print, transport, and recycle thousands of pages would be saved!`
