If you commute by car to work or study, you could turn it into an opportunity to help others and potentially save money as well. While low-carbon options like public transport or active travel would be first choice in an ideal world, for many people it may be impractical in rural areas where public transport may be infrequent. So if you’re driving, make the most of your miles as you commute with these simple tips to save money and cut carbon on your commute.
Give or get a lift
Be smart when charging your electric car
Consider pledging to use public transport or active travel once a month
If it’s possible for you, why not pledge to use public transport and/or active travel (i.e. walking, wheeling or cycling) for your commute once per month? You could ask colleagues to join you and arrange to travel together. Every small action you take helps to reduce your carbon footprint, so a monthly “walking or cycling bus” or public transport pledge could help your workplace meet its climate change targets.
