Did you know that personal vehicles are the biggest source of ozone-forming emissions in Central Texas?
Ozone Action Season has started, and driving less is an important way to take care of our air. Movability and the Capital Area Council of Governments CAPCOG are partnering to help Central Texans understand the connection between transportation modes and pollutants in our air. We will be rewarding the commuters who rack up the biggest CO2 savings with their logged trips!
From April through June, we will send CO2 report cards to active users in the Get There Central Texas network. Commuters with the biggest carbon reductions will win monthly prizes.
