Transit Solutions is participating in Clean Air NY's Community Partner program. In partnership with 511NY Rideshare, Clean Air NY helps commuters find easy, affordable and sustainable alternatives to driving alone. As a Clean Air NY Community Partner, we pledge to inform our memebers about air quality and help you make the switch from driving alone to carpooling, vanpooling, taking transit, or biking to work. In 2017, members of 511NY Rideshare and Clean Air NY saved roughly 5,000 metric tons of CO2 and 392,000 drive-alone trips.
