Sustainability Mobility Fair:
Future Transportation Choices for Short Trips
Saturday, May 8, 2010, the Alternative Transportation group held a well-attended Sustainability Mobility Fair with the Center for Student Innovation at Rochester Institute of Technology. This event offered the public an opportunity to see and examine possible alternative transportation for those short distance trips we take from our homes.
Attendees were able to see what is new and now available on the market - and got to experience the latest choices in electric (bicycles, trikes, cars and motorcycles), hybrid electric, GEM car, Zip car, hydrogen, biodiesel, compressed natural gas, propane hybrid, plug-in electric, ethanol, Walking School Buses, bicycles, ‘veggie’ vehicles, and cycling transportation technologies. As more commuters become aware of travel choices, we expect more will choose these transportation alternatives because of the environmental, health and quality of life benefits.
