Metro’s carbon conscience

Thursday, April 3rd, 2008

The Everybody Rides Metro foundation now offers a tool to calculate your carbon emissions related to travel. You can estimate the amount of carbon your transportation methods are releasing into the air (be it biking, walking, driving, riding the bus, or carpooling) and then make a donation to the Metro Green Fund to offset the carbon emissions you are creating.

This is a good way to raise awareness about the benefits and consequences of different methods of travel around Cincinnati. Your contributions to Everybody Rides Metro and the Metro Green Fund are tax deductable and go towards supporting the Rider Fund for providing transportation options to low-income and disadvantaged individuals as well as the purchase of hybrid buses.
