Episode 11

Nowadays, there are many options for being green on the go - but is one transportation service more eco-friendly than the other? What information should you know before you ride your bike, take the bus, or use a ride share app? Ed and Rachelle also navigate you through ways to plan your short and long-distance trips, and answer a listener’s question about reducing your carbon footprint through Uber vs. public transportation.
