Moving around from one point to another is inevitable. However, commuting ideally should be done in a way that doesn’t negatively affect the environment or human health.
Unlike the regular gasoline transportation system, green transportation is environmentally sensitive. In green transportation, individuals use their own power to move around. Electric vehicles, walking or bicycles are some of the common sustainable means.
Green transportation is undoubtedly the future of sustainability. This is because it comes along with reduced burning of fossil fuels that produce environmentally-unfriendly gases associated with effects like climate change and health complications.
Generally, green transportation facilitates the following:
- Reduced environmental degradation – Green vehicles are environmentally-cautious. They do not emit gases that can affect the environment.
- Saved money – Green transportation is cheap and affordable. Therefore, less money is spent on transportation.
- A sustainable economy – More job opportunities will be created to manufacture green vehicles.
- Improved health – Green vehicles do not produce harmful gases that can risk human health.
The following are some of the popular forms of green transportation:
Trains are a major solution to many problems that society is currently facing. They can help solve traffic congestion and environmental degradation, as well as save lives.
Trains are a long-term investment and thus a smart transportation solution that will save society both today and in the future.
In recent years, many people haven’t found scooters reliable. However, various modifications have been made, and they are now a popular mode of green transportation.
People have grown more aware of electric scooters as green transportation. Therefore, many are now considering them a viable transportation option.
Scooters are not only reducing carbon emission significantly but only when used to eliminate cars, not bicycles.
Scooters also are easy to obtain as they are cheaper than cars.
Electric vehicles are battery powered and thus produce no emissions. Air pollution is less compared to gasoline-powered cars.
However, electric vehicles might not be so sustainable due to their high prices. Not many people can afford to buy these vehicles as of yet.
Bicycles are one of the greenest means of transportation. Cycling instead of driving cars have significant benefits. Individuals use their own power to cycle bicycles; thus no emission of gases that would pollute the air.
Even better, bicycles are far cheaper compared to cars. The cost of maintenance is low, too, since no fuel is needed.
Cycling is a great form of exercise. People who cycle daily are more likely to be in good health and shape as opposed to those who drive cars daily.
Bicycles can help solve the traffic congestion problems that many countries are facing. They do not need much space for riding or parking.
Europe and Japan have been using some of the world’s fastest and best trains for several decades. Many other countries have started adopting this means of transportation.
Electric trains are fast and cheap; making them preferable to most people in countries where they are available.
