Green Transportation Options

Clean Up Your Commute!

Emissions from transportation is the largest GHG source category in Colma (and most other jurisdictions). Reducing car trips is a great way to reduce emissions and can be accomplished in a variety of different ways including biking, carpooling, and using public transit.


Biking to work or school is an easy way to reduce emissions, save money, and get exercise. See the below resources for tips on how to implement biking into your commute, and how to set up your bike for a safe and successful ride.
