Having good air quality means a better future for
all of us.
Clean Air NY Advocate, Brian B. on biking:
I ride my bike because it's the best transportation option for my mental and physical well-being. The cost savings and low environmental footprint are nice bonuses too.
Clean Air NY Advocate, Stuart M. on walking to the bus:
I've been taking the bus to and from work after many years of driving. In addition to helping to preserve the environment, I've also managed to lose 8 pounds by getting regular exercise walking over a mile each way to and from the bus stop!
I carpool with my husband. We get to spend time together and save money and time. Keeping our CO2 emissions low is the icing on the cake
Clean Air NY Advocate, Ellen W. on taking the train:
"Commuting on the Long Island Rail Road helps the environment and is faster and more peaceful than driving. I have a comfortable seat every day - it's where I finished writing my doctoral dissertation!"

“I learned to refill my gas tank after work from Clean Air NY, and have made it a habit.”
