Climate Considerations

Public transportation plays an important role in reducing a community’s environmental impacts from transportation and enhancing the quality of life for its residents. Public transportation can facilitate compact development, conserving land and decreasing travel demand, as well as reducing fuel use and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions that contribute to climate change.
