Transport is one of the largest global contributors to air pollution and emissions. Petrol and diesel fuels create harmful byproducts like nitrogen dioxide, carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons, and formaldehyde. Furthermore, these fossil fuels contribute to substantial carbon dioxide emissions. These have a detrimental impact on human health, climate, and ecosystem integrity, constraining our collective sustainability efforts. In addition, the rising cost of fuel puts a strain on individuals, organisations, and societies, making sustainable travel not just an eco-friendly decision, but an economic necessity, too.
We should aim to take small but concrete steps towards this by exploring resources and facilities which are already available for us. A simple, convenient, and cost-effective way of minimising our negative environmental footprint is to consider the use of alternative modes of transportation, such as shared vehicles and public transport (trains and buses). To inspire all members of our Krea Community, gravitate toward sustainable travel options, and facilitate the transition, we have created a pamphlet, ‘Train Travel: Green. Sustainable. Efficient.’ Take a look at the practical information contained in it — in particular, the public transport alternatives, timetables and cost associated with each, to make informed and responsible travel decisions.
