GREEN DRIVING TIPS
- 1 Telecommuting If taking one day off from commuting per week is a good thing, taking five days off is even better. Telecommuting, or working from home, is growing in popularity. While not every job advocates telecommuting, many workers can do their jobs with just a computer and a high-speed Internet connection..
- 2 The Four-day Workweek It’s likely that most of your time driving is spent going to and from work. One way to ease congestion, pollution and the amount of gas you use is to go to work only four days a week. We’re not advocating skipping. The four-day workweek is a movement that’s growing so much that some state governments are considering it for their workers.
- 3 Another One Rides the Bus Whether you own a car, use a car sharing service, or don’t drive at all, mass transit is a great way to get around while staying green. If two people car pooling removes one car from the road, the benefits are even greater when 30 people ride a bus and eliminate all their cars from the streets.
- 4 Sharing is Caring Car sharing is another way to drive green that’s gaining in popularity, especially in urban areas. People who may not drive every day but still want a car to run errands or drive on weekends benefit most from car sharing. Car sharing is usually run by a service like Zipcar, though there are nonprofit and informal car sharing services.
- 5 Car Pooling If you really want to cut down on your fuel usage, car pooling is a great way to do it. When two (or more) people buddy up and ride together, the number of cars on the road drops and gas is saved. It’s that simple.A number of cities and towns have car pooling resources. Some heavily congested areas use High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lanes to encourage carpooling.
- 6 Fuel-efficient Car f you’re really serious about driving greener, you can get a more fuel-efficient car. Like switching from a large SUV like the Chevrolet Tahoe, which has an EPA-estimated combined gas mileage of 16 mpg, to a small car like the Honda Fit, which has an EPA-estimated combined gas mileage of 30 mpg.
