Congestion and Traffic Reduction

Transportation accounts for 42% of the Half Moon Bay's community greenhouse gas emissions in 2017. Most of those emissions come from gas-powered vehicles. Every trip counts and reducing single-rider car trips is one of the most effective ways you can help reduce greenhouse gas emissions to combat climate change. The City encourages residents and visitors to drive electric vehicles, carpool, bike, walk or take public transportation whenever possible. To get started, check out some of our resources below.
