Why GreenTrips?

The Benefits for You and our Region

Green trips are good for you, the environment, and your wallet! Save money and improve your health, sense of community, stress levels, and enjoyment of life.

  • Money:  Save on automobile maintenance and fuel by driving less.
  • Health:  By walking, biking, or getting to and from the bus, you are building physical activity into your daily life.
  • Community:  Riding the bus and carpooling are great ways to get to know your neighbors and co-workers. Biking and walking give you different perspectives on your city than you might experience from behind a steering wheel.
  • Stress:  Working from home, getting an extra day off as a flex worker, socializing on the bus or with fellow carpoolers, and getting some exercise while walking or biking can all help to reduce stress.
  • Fun:  Remember the joy of riding a bike as a kid? You can recapture that joy as an adult.  Plus, as a GreenTrips member you can enjoy some healthy competition with your friends and coworkers. Challenge each other to log the most trips, burn the most calories, reduce the most carbon emissions, or walk the most miles!

    There’s more!  Register to earn rewards and prizes for logging your green trips.

Remember, the fewer trips you take in a car by yourself, the more you help our region to:

  • Improve air quality
  • Reduce traffic congestion
  • Keep money in the regional economy, by reducing money spent on gas
  • Reduce the public costs of road infrastructure, parking, and health care
