Use public transportation

We understand that you want to rent a car and feel comfortable in your trips but this is so polluting activity. If everyone rents a car on their trip, we cannot imagine how much GHG emissions occur. Renting a taxi or using platforms like Uber will also increase carbon emissions and the car will work for only you. Public transportation is an opportunity to share all carbon emissions with other people and pollute the world less.
