Sustainable Transportation: Cycling, Walking, and Public Transportation

Transportation accounts for about half of Berkeley's total greenhouse gas emissions with gasoline consumption in cars as the single largest source of emissions in Berkeley. Learn how Berkeley is shifting the balance away from a dependence on driving and toward sustainable transportation modes such as: walking, biking, transit, car sharing, and electric vehicles. For more information about transportation, see the Transportation Division.

Biking and Walking in Berkeley: Riding a bicycle and walking are healthy and sustainable alternatives to driving.

Electric Vehicles: Driving an electric car rather than a conventional car in the Bay Area can reduce the associated greenhouse gas emissions by nearly 70%.
