How could we save the planet by using a more sustainable way of transportation?
How can we save our countries and cities, like Budapest from a big wave of pollution?
These questions concern most of us in our daily life. Most of us think about it before getting into the car in the morning, which is most of the time faster and easier and more comfortable as well. But thinking about it once a while won’t help the environment’s status to improve further, we have to make big and sudden changes in order to solve this problem, before it totally gets out of hand. Our city’s life is in our hands, so it is time to act!
The environmental effect of transport is significant because transport is a major user of energy and burns most of the world’s petroleum. This creates air pollution, including nitrous oxides and particulates and is a significant contributor to global warming through emission of carbon dioxide. – Sounds complicated? It’s quite easy. The more you use these vehicles the more dirt and unhealthy tiny particles will build into the air in Budapest.
What could we do to help?
We have this question in our mind more and more often these days, when everything is about recycling, being more careful while shopping groceries or when we get in our cars in the morning.
Maybe we don’t tell you a secret, when we talk about transportation as one of the biggest threats on the planet’s health – even if it cannot be changed, we can improve on the conditions if we pay attention to it. Using alternative ways of commuting, such as electric solutions, traveling with more people at the same time etc. can help.
Those concerned about climate change are taking steps to mitigate the effects of transportation on Earth’s atmosphere. Car manufacturers are developing and promoting electric vehicles, and scientists are exploring alternative fuels like hydrogen fuel cells.
Created from renewable energy sources, these fuel cells would help end dependence on fossil fuels. High-speed railways with trains powered by electricity are another eco-friendly option that would emit less carbon dioxide than traditional diesel trains and would offer reasonable travel alternatives for airline consumers.
For individuals, like us, the first step in reducing emissions is researching the travel options available and investigating one’s relative carbon footprint. Here comes Luna Tours and several other e-transportation companies in the picture. E-biking, e-scooters and electric vehicles are huge on the market nowadays. You have all the possible options to choose from.
There are several online calculators that can estimate the emissions of a trip based on the mode of transportation. For short distances, walking or riding a bike, riding an e-scooter or e-bike or any electric vehicles, is the obvious choice for low-to-no carbon emissions. Public transportation like buses, subways, and trolleys are almost always better than driving a car, because the more people traveling in a vehicle, the smaller the carbon footprint of each person.
The easiest and most convenient way to get to know Budapest is to go by e-scooter! No need to worry about long and tiring walks or boring bus trips – choose Luna tours and get to know the city inside and out in an unusual, but safe way! Our sightseeing is thorough without unnecessary time-wasting.
