Alternative transportation will help Maine achieve its climate goals by replacing car miles and emissions. Active transportation (biking, walking) provides an enormous opportunity to protect our environment by replacing short driving trips with public transit, biking, or walking. The BCM supports legislation related to climate studies and efforts to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions through the use of active transportation.
