Since I can’t walk home, I walked to the subway station to take public transportation and turned down a ride from a friend.
According to the NYC MTA, “Every day, each person who chooses to travel by bus or train contributes to a cleaner environment. That translates into approximately 700,000 cars kept out of New York City’s central business district daily. It also means 400 million fewer pounds of soot, carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons, and other toxic substances released each year into the city’s air.” Get more facts and figures about NYC transit and the environment.
