ABSTRACT
The article discusses the impact of transportation to global climatic changes. Studies show that the transportation contributes 2.01 gigatonnes of carbon dioxide annually. In an effort to minimize or reduce carbon emissions, governments worldwide formulate different strategies. In Boulder Colorado, authorities have redesigned its service to make the buses smaller and more frequent thus increasing ridership five-fold. In Hasselt, Belgium, it made its buses free, paid for by city taxes thereby increasing ridership 10-fold.
