Clean Air Council

Cleaner IconCleaner Commute Philadelphia


The decision we make on how to get to work, run errands and recreate have a profound impact on our budget, quality of life and the environmental footprint. Reducing the pollution produced by a “one person, one car” commute has a major impact on the region’s air quality. Transportation is the fastest growing sector in terms of greenhouse gas emissions. The Council recognizes that transportation is also an environmental justice and equity issue. The Council works to reduce the number of vehicles on the road for commuting purposes by being a strong advocate for public transit, biking and walking, and carpooling.
