2. Transportation

Transportation is one of the largest users of energy.

Promoting mass transportation lessons the ecological footprint, conserves energy, reduces carbon emissions, reduces the need for parking lots, as well as many other social and environental benefits.

Walt Disney World Resorts® is a model for promoting both mass transportation and alternatives to the automobile.

Each year they move ninety million guests around the resort through diverse transportation modes including: monorail, boats, buses, and trams. In addition they have developed pedestrian trails and bike trails connecting accommodations and theme parks.

Walt Disney World has also developed an incentive to use mass transportation from the airports to their Hotels, and Cruise ships through the Magical Express.

This program is estimated to save about eleven million metric tons of carbon per year.


The Rocky Mountain Institute has outlined a plan to reinvent our transportation system and described in the video below.
