Transportation is a major source of greenhouse gas emissions nationwide, contributing to climate change that affects national parks. The National Park Service (NPS) and Clean Cities are partnering to encourage visitors and staff to “green their ride” in parks and at home to reduce fuel use and GHG emissions.
While America’s national parks are nearly synonymous with “road trip,” most parks offer visitors a variety of ways to get around besides personal cars. Because transportation within the park, including visitor vehicles, accounts for 85% of the average park’s greenhouse gas emissions, reducing the number of vehicles on the road can make a big difference.
