I'd like to maintain this type of commuting anywhere we move, although we might add bicycling (it isn't safe to bike with the baby yet).
I'm just not sure how to convince other people that this kind of commuting is best. Maybe this warning message we received today would help:
Tomorrow, Friday, September 2, is a Spare the Air Day in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Concentrations of ground-level ozone pollution are forecast to be unhealthy tomorrow. Hot temperatures and light winds will combine to produce poor air quality for the Bay Area.
To help prevent smog tomorrow, please:
- Carpool or vanpool with friends or co-workers
- Take public transportation
- Telecommute -- work from home instead of driving to work
- Link necessary trips and postpone errands if possible
