  1. FOOT TRAVEL

Like bicycling, walking brings benefits to your health and the environment. What makes walking most important, however, is the fact that it is F-R-E-E! So when you are thinking about how to minimize your expenses, consider if you might be able to live close to work or school and simply use your feet as your primary mode of transport.

  1. RIDE SHARING

Ride sharing is a very popular method of alternative transportation. A common version of ride sharing is carpooling. This isn’t surprising considering how many people have a personal car. Carpooling is an arrangement between two or more persons to travel together in a single car to a common destination.

Today’s economy has changed the way we all think about energy and money. Getting to where you need to be may be a hassle, but maybe carpooling with friends can make the trip fun. If you or the driver has a hybrid, even better! If your job is close enough, try walking or biking because it’ll decrease air pollution and push a little exercise into your routine. Public transportation is another option. Bus stops are on corners close to you and their schedules can be found online. Being on time for the bus will always keep you aware of getting to work early or right on the dot.
