Sustainable Transport is about getting around with the minimum impact on the planet. In general, it’s any form of transport that doesn’t use resources faster than they can be regenerated.
Electric trains or buses, or those that use fuel cell technology, are considered sustainable as electricity can be produced using solar, wind, tidal or hydroelectric sources.
Use of trains and buses reduces the number of vehicles on the road, lowering the level of vehicle traffic, lowering congestion, lowering pollution. A sustainable future is one of cleaner healthier air.
