Help Reduce Air Pollution with Clean Air NY!

Clean Air NY's mission is to educate New Yorkers about how they can improve our air quality. Nearly one-third of all air pollution in the New York metropolitan region is caused by vehicle travel, so taking alternative forms of transportation, such as mass transit, can make a big difference. Each year, mass transit reduces carbon dioxide emissions by roughly the same amount as if electricity was turned off to half the houses in New York State! Other actions that can help clean the air are combining multiple errands into one trip and carpooling. More ideas can be found on the "Do Your Part" page!

Note: The Clean Air NY program is currently in transition. During this time, all information about Clean Air NY will be published on this page.
