People Getting on Simi Valley Transit Bus

Overview

"Is this trip really necessary?"  Before you hop in the car to make that run to the grocery store or run other errands, stop for a moment and think about what you want to accomplish.  Can you combine one errand with several?  Can you pick up that item with others, on the way to another destination? 

The majority of people in Southern California are still dependent on single-occupant, gasoline-powered vehicles, which contribute to congestion on our streets and freeways and increase the amount of oil we burn.  Using alternatives to driving alone will help to reduce our dependency and the time spent driving, while driving more fuel-efficient vehicles will reduce our costs and improve air quality.
