Alternative transportation

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.

Public transportation

If possible, organize and join a car pool in your neighborhood, school or workplace.

Car pool

Choose vehicles that produce the least pollution, such as better-maintained buses, light rail (LRTs) and railroad transits (Metro Train).

LRTS and metro train

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

Scooters and bicycles

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

For longer trips across the city, try to plot a safe and proper route through less busy side streets and minimize passing through congested intersections
