How much can people lower their transportation-related CO2 emissions by living in cities?

    Unfortunately, merely living in a city will not decrease a person’s carbon output. Most people don’t jettison their ideas about the necessity of cars when they move to a bigger city, so they may actually increase their carbon output due to getting stuck in gridlock, as opposed to using the public transport system or walking to work. However, most big cities do have housing close to commercial centers, in addition to buses, subways, and light rails, which allow people to get where they’re going cheaper and with a lower CO2 output than a personal car.

    I hope this helped!

    Many cities have public transportation, which allows people to move about without having to drive their own vehicles. Alternatively, people can carpool because others living in their neighborhood may be heading in the same direction for work or shopping. Cities also offer more shopping and services closer together so people can walk or bike to stores. Even if someone is to drive their car, they may be able to walk between stores, reducing the start up and stop of their car.

    These are all ways to help reduce emissions and make the planet a cleaner place. People living in suburbs or in the country must drive further, often alone, and release a lot of emissions into the air and atmosphere.
