  • Reflection Question
    Transport Test Drive an Electric Bike
    Half of all trips made in the US are three miles or less; 72% of them are driven. Private vehicles account for 60% of trips of a mile or less. Do you often drive short distances instead of biking or walking? If so, how might incorporating an electric bike into your lifestyle help you make more climate-friendly choices?

    I often drive short distances, so an electric bike would not produce pollution.

    Use alternative energy sources like hydroelectric or wind, they don't produce as much pollution.
