Green Ways of Getting Around moves readers toward careers in "green" transportation, including travel by air, sea, and land, and even in more “extreme” environments, such as outer space and under water. This book explores mass transit and automotive transportation, highlighting fuel-powered vehicles, such as buses, planes, and boats, which carry with them their own pros and cons as being fuel-efficient and ecologically sound. Also included: using “pedal power,” pedestrian-friendly venues, concepts that promote walkability and sustainable mass transit, and powering transportation with alternative energy sources.

“This is an excellent resource that would be a solid purchase for any school at any level. A plethora of ideas are presented about “green” methods and ideas that involve the transportation industry. The book is modern and unique and provides great career information.” —Carol Bookmiller, librarian, West Allegheny High School, 08/12
