CLEAN TRANSPORTATION

WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP

OUR MISSION
  • Reduce carbon emissions generated by transportation

  • Increase the adoption of EVs

  • Encourage walking and biking as the primary modes of getting around the town

  • Steward school Walk-or-Wheel! (WoW!) programs

  • Advocate for improved walking and biking infrastructure and Safe Routes to Schools

  • Advocate for increased use of public transit

THE PROBLEM
  • On-road transportation contributes to more than 50% of greenhouse gas emissions in Los Altos and Los Altos Hills

  • Our communities are leaders in adoption of EVs - the 2nd highest in California as a percent of registered vehicles

  • Yet, only 8% of registered vehicles are EVs, leaving a lot of room for improvement

  • Los Altos has 100 miles of streets. Safe streets for pedestrians and bicyclists are critical to increasing the number of people comfortably walking and biking

  • Our relatively flat geography and mild climate makes it ideal for walking and biking. The number of students biking to high school increased markedly between 2010 and 2019
