Hi! I’m a 16 year-old student from Gothenburg, Sweden.
In Gothenburg city there are many busses, trams etc. We also have trains from Gothenburg to almost every city in Sweden.
Well we can actually reduce the footprint…
You can for an example go by bus or walk instead of driving the car. The only problems is that the busses are ALWAYS late and if you’re going by bus in the weekends it’s really expensive.
So my solution is to cut down the prices to make more people ride public transport!

    that's true :)
    but how about with public transport in small villages??
    for example where I live there is no public transport….

    If you live outside a big city like I do the public transport is pretty ok except that they can't be on time :P

    Hello from California, USA! I don't think buses are too expensive. Sure, it would be nice if they were cheaper, but if I buy bus passes, they're about 25 cents cheaper than an average ride. Buss rides here are $2 dollars. A little makes a lot of a difference when you ride the bus to school every day.
    Buses are excellent methods of transportation compared to cars. Carpooling is always a smart idea for reducing carbon emissions. I also try to ride my bike and walk places whenever possible. Whenever I go to the downtown of my city, I walk. It may take a lot longer, but I feel better when I know I'm helping the environment. Did you know that public transit saves 14 million tons of carbon dioxide being spewed into the air annually? Check out the facts, and ride the bus! http://reason.org/news/show/1009762.html
