TRANServe would like to commend all of the federal employees who on a daily basis contribute to reducing the commuter carbon footprint by using mass transit to commute to and from work.
According to the Federal Transit Administration, public transportation can reduce the need for many separate trips by private vehicles in dense urban areas, replacing many separate emissions-producing vehicles with fewer transit vehicles that generally emit less pollution on a per person basis. National averages demonstrate that public transportation produces significantly lower greenhouse gas emissions per passenger mile than private vehicles. Heavy rail transit such as subways and metros produce on average 76% lower greenhouse gas emissions per passenger mile than an average single-occupancy vehicle (SOV).
Since Executive Order 13150 was signed in April 2000, TRANServe has administered the transit benefit program for federal employees. We will continue to lead the way in championing the transit benefit program and its contribution to improving the sustainability of both the environment and our nation’s infrastructure.
