Welcome to the City of Albuquerque

Clear the Air


Consider the environmental benefits of using alternative forms of transportation.

Albuquerque, let's clear the air.

Single-occupancy vehicles are one of the largest contributors to air pollution in Albuquerque. According to the American Public Transportation Association, using alternative transportation can reduce harmful CO2 emissions by 37 million metric tons annually.

Every person who choses to use alternative transportation decreases their impact on air pollution.

Not only does alternative transportation help the environment, it also helps your budget. A household that uses alternative transportation can save an average of $6,251 every year.

Drive less. Save money. Clear the Air.
