Tips for earth-friendly travel

Uncover practical tips to make your journeys greener. Learn about fuel-efficient driving, carpooling strategies, and how to plan eco-conscious road trips. Small changes make a big impact.

Bicycles: Biking is a zero-emission mode of transport that promotes personal health and reduces air pollution. Electric bikes (e-bikes) are also gaining popularity for longer commutes. Dust off your bike, get a second-hand option or find a bike repair shop near you.

Public transport: Buses and trains are energy-efficient modes of transportation that reduce the number of individual vehicles on the road, lowering overall carbon emissions. Use AT's Journey Planner for all public transport options. Did you know that public transport is free for kids under 13? Read more here.

Walking: The most eco-friendly mode of transport, walking has zero environmental impact and promotes a healthy lifestyle. If your destination is close enough, give it a try to see how long it takes you.

Carpooling: Sharing rides with others helps reduce the number of vehicles on the road, easing traffic congestion and decreasing individual carbon footprints. Ideal for everyday journeys, such as commuting to work or coordinating drop-offs for kids' activities.

Electric vehicles (EVs): EVs produce fewer emissions compared to traditional vehicles, contributing to improved air quality. As the charging infrastructure expands, more people are making the switch to electric cars.
