Clean Transportation

Transportation is the largest source of greenhouse gas emissions in Nevada, degrading air quality and disproportionately increasing air pollution in historically disadvantaged communities. Las Vegas provides a variety of transportation choices so people can reduce harmful emissions to make our air cleaner and healthier.
