|Ideas for Action : Save, Recycle and Do Not Pollute (IIRR, 1992, 146 p.)|
Perhaps, it would be best for the environment and for the country if private cars were not used at all. This helps in a way to conserve fuel, lessen pollution and traffic. Minimizing the use of private cars will encourage the government to develop and improve the public transportation system.
Take public transportation for commuting; this keeps at least one car off the road.
If possible, organize and join a car pool in your neighborhood, school or workplace.
Choose vehicles that produce the least pollution, such as better-maintained buses, light rail (LRTs) and railroad transits (Metro Train).

If advisable, ride a scooter or a bike. Scooters consume less fuel than a motorcycle and bicycles consume none at all.

Short trips to the nearby grocery can easily be done on a bicycle. Mount a basket on the bicycle to make things easier.
