Get Ready for Green Your Commute Day

Oil those gears, lace up those shoes, and load up those transit passes because Green Your Commute Day is coming up soon! This year's NYS Department of Environmental Conservation's event will be taking place on Friday, May 18.

Green Your Commute Day not only represents a great opportunity for all of us to lead by example by using more sustainable forms of transportation to get to work, but lowers our carbon emissions as well. More importantly, it shows us how easy, fun, and convenient it can be to bike, walk, take public transit, or carpool to work, and may even spur us to start new habits. More information on Green Your Commute Day and resources to help you plan your greener commute can be found here:

How to Participate:

    • Register: Register your commute at:
    • Act: Simply walk, bike, take public transit, car pool, drive an electric vehicle, or use another form of sustainable transportation that is not driving alone to work in a gasoline-powered vehicle.
    • Post: Post a selfie of your green commute on social media using #GYCD18
