Skip the Plane, Take the Train

Share |

34916022 We know that using mass transit for everyday travel will help lower your carbon footprint because you hop aboard a vehicle already going to the same destination. But what about vacation transportation? Sure, trains may have a reputation for being slow and taking dozens of hours, but from home to hotel, train passengers get to see more of the world while acting more sustainably. A shorter trip, such as from Washington, D.C. to New York, NY takes about the same amount of time door-to-door as an airplane flight would take, while emitting half the amount of carbon dioxide. Train travel tends to be way cheaper than air travel, even at the last minute!
