Alternatives to Driving

Automobile trip reduction programs provide alternatives to owning and operating a private vehicle. By having several options such as short-term car rental, a transit pass, or a guaranteed ride home, people maintain control of their travel choices and schedule. In other cases, a show of appreciation and support can make the difference between driving and choosing other modes.

The flexibility and cost savings of car sharing programs such as Zip Car allows some people to give up car ownership entirely. Guaranteed ride home programs, together with car rentals and subsidized transit passes, provide insurance against being “stranded.” A diversity of options, together with the assurance of being able to get home, means more people will choose walking.
