Commute, don’t pollute. Learn about Del Mar’s transportation alternatives for a healthier, more vibrant community.
The greatest amount of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in Del Mar (57%) come from transportation, which includes travel within city limits as well as trips outside of Del Mar’s boundary that either start or end within city limits. The City of Del Mar supports alternative transportation strategies to reduce GHG emissions by reducing vehicle miles and fuel use of all residents, visitors, and employees of Del Mar. These transportation strategies include reducing single-passenger vehicle trips, making streets and sidewalks more bicycle and pedestrian friendly, and advocating for improved public transit service in terms of quality, frequency, and route options.
