Video: How much carbon is saved by taking BART

Taking BART to the same place every day for one month emits less CO2 than driving the same route just once, which translates into a car's carbon footprint being about 30 times larger compared to riding the rails, according to the agency.

BART is one of the greenest options for Bay Area residents looking to move around the region. In 2020, BART achieved a 100% greenhouse gas-free (GHG-free) power supply with a combination of hydroelectric, solar, and wind energy.

BART is also on-track to achieve 50% to 60% renewable energy in 2022, according to BART's energy manager.

MTC and BART are transportation partners.
