What Will Motivate You to Change Your Driving Habits?

Over at Greenversations, the official blog of the EPA, there’s a lively discussion going on about what it’ll take to get us to change our driving habits. It’s a good question, one that’s becoming more front and center for most Americans.

The post notes that the pressures of rising gas prices and increasing pollution have many people wanting to drive less, but not necessarily everyone can, at least easily so. 

For me, I’d take public transportation in a heartbeat. If it were available for my commute. I yearn for high-speed light rail of some sort to run between where I live and where I work. In the meantime, I’m thankful I’m at least able to carpool with three or four other people.

I'd definately take a train if it were available. In addition to saving gas, it would be great to read or work (or snooze) on the way to/from the office.
