Make The Switch (Car Show 2013)
Fuel-efficient alternative-energy vehicles are better than ever, and it’s never been easier to find one that’s right for you. We’ve got the scoop on different makes and models, and where to drive and buy them in Westchester.
ALL ABOUT THIS TASK FORCE

27% of our community’s greenhouse gases and other pollutants affecting air quality are produced by transportation sources (Climate Action Plan). Bedford 2020’s Transportation Task Force will focus on several ways to reduce the emissions from transportation vehicles and improve the quality of life in Bedford.

Our goals are:

  • Promote a shift to more fuel efficient, smaller, hybrid or electric cars
  • Promote a switch to fuels that emit fewer pollutants
  • Improve school carpooling and school bus usage
  • Increase awareness of and enforce anti-idling laws
  • Reduce the total number of miles traveled by promoting a switch from automobiles to mass transit, walking or bicycling
