The ways we get to work, to school, and across town use the most energy of any category: diesel and gasoline use make up an astonishing 75% of all energy consumption. Athens-Clarke County is committed to finding and implementing more efficient, diverse fuel alternatives that save dollars and energy.
Carpool with neighbors or co-workers to reduce traffic and gas consumption

Athens-Clarke County is currently in the process of developing a bike/pedestrian master plan called Athens In Motion to develop a safe, connected, and equitable bike and pedestrian network. ACC TSPLOST projects are working towards a better and safer transportation system in Athens.
