“Alternative transportation” is a term that encompasses everything from more energy efficient cars, to public transportation like buses and rail, to getting along without a car through bicycling or walking. The term is usually used for forms of transportation that reduce our reliance on oil and other fossil fuels, and so help to reduce the impact of global warming. The first options that come to mind may be technology fancy alternatives like plug-in electric vehicles and high-speed rail systems – and these certainly are important. However, finding alternatives to oil-based transportation can be as simple as riding your bike to work or school, or walking to the supermarket instead of driving.
Bikes! Walking technically also counts as alternative transportation, though it seems a little ridiculous to refer to something that most of us do or have done naturally as “alternative.” Besides that, rail transit counts as alternative transportation, as do boats, especially when they aren’t gas guzzlers or are commuter boats, or are even kayaks, like this guy has: http://www.wcbs880.com/pages/3424418.php?.
Things that haven’t been mentioned are: Roller Blades, Skateboards, Shoes with Wheels in them–what are they called again? Rollershoes?) Skis, Snowboards, and my favorite Gliders! Gliders will most definitely be utilized for transporting goods in the future…
