Less than 2% of daily commuters in NYC bike to work every day.

The rest of us continue to overload the Transit system and escalate the use of automobiles while our Co2 footprint continues to grow unchecked. Conventional modes of transportation contributes a massive 27% to total Greenhouse gas emissions in the U.S. If just 5% of all people commuting by private car or taxi switched to walking or cycling, the result would be a decrease of 150 million pounds of CO2 emissions per year — the equivalent of planting trees on an area 1.3 times the size of Manhattan.
