WHY DRIVE LESS MATTERS

Transportation currently accounts for nearly half of the greenhouse gas emissions in California. Choosing to drive less and take alternate modes of transport will help create the community we want to live in – one centered on people, not cars.

WHAT CEC IS DOING

As part of its mission to move our region off fossil fuels, CEC advocates for people-focused transportation solutions like pedestrian trails, bike lanes, and rideshare programs that create cheaper, safer commutes, vibrant neighborhoods, and healthy families.

Here are some of the specific actions CEC is taking that you can act on too.

Community Planning

CEC plays a major role in long-term sustainable community planning by encouraging civic engagement in government planning such as the Bike Master Plan, the Regional Transportation Plan, the County’s Climate Action Strategy, and the City of Santa Barbara’s general plan update. Learn how you can get involved.

On Demand Ride Sharing

CEC is partnering with Traffic Solutions to pilot a dynamic ridesharing project, one of the first in the country. Learn how you can get involved.
