There are many options to get around town in style while reducing your carbon footprint. Particularly for local errands, consider leaving your car at home to reduce your travel footprint.
Did you know — using less gasoline translates into big savings?
MAKE LOCAL TRAVEL MORE SUSTAINABLE
IDLING IS ‘FUELISH’.
If you are idling, you may as well be burning dollar bills. In addition, the pollution from idling may actually cause more premature deaths in NJ than homicides and car accidents combined.
SWAP AND SAVE.
Replace a gas-powered car with an electric vehicle (EV) and lower your maintenance costs. The average cost to operate an EV is $485 per year, as compared to $1,117 per year for gas-powered vehicles.
KEEP IT TUNED.
Proper care of your gas-powered vehicle — maintenance, tires and oil — can save about 15 cents per gallon, and nudge away at your emissions.

The Princeton Climate Action Plan identifies multiple strategies to promote public transit, bicycling, and walking within Princeton, and to expand access to electric vehicles and other low-emission alternatives.
