Choosing to walk or bike instead of drive reduces pollution. Making it easier to walk or bike in a community can encourage people to make that choice, leading to cleaner air and longer-lasting roads. If you have a 5-mile commute and bike instead of drive four days per week, you’ll save 2,000 miles of driving each year. That’s 100 gallons of gas at 20 miles per gallon, saving more than $2,000 in gas money and 2,000 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions.
