Transport and Fuel Options for a Better Future

Here we are, well into the 21st century...

For most of us transport and fuel choices are huge issues, especially our own personal transport options.

In this section of the Greenfootsteps site we explore some of the best options for personal and family transport and look at practical ways of cutting down car use.

the open road - maybe a thing of the pas

We all know the main transport options - bikes, cars, buses, trains, flying, etc. The point here is to explore some of the better options for realistic and cost-effective greener living.

The inevitable truth is that we (nearly) all want our own personal transport, sitting right outside our homes, in the drive or the street!

It looks like the family car is here to stay for a long while yet, even given that fuel prices are likely to rise in the not-too-distant future. The trend is upwards, even though the recent economic woes have given us a pause, caused by a slump in demand. Oil prices are under constant pressure from the declining number of new accessible oil discoveries.

This section looks mainly at car options with some pages on fuels.

Congestion and traffic jams are a daily reality, it seems, despite the possibilities provided by new transport and fuel options, such as hydrogen fuel cells and electric cars.
