My Green Metrocard For The Subway.

Posted by: Bruce Nussbaum on June 3, 2008

I bought a Metrocard for the New York subway recently and it was colored green, not the usual black. Nice. Then I flipped it around and there it was. A message from the MTA : “Your carbon footprint is 1/4 of the national average!”

Cities with mass transit are greener than those without one, the suburbs and the exurbs. Which are the greenest cities in the US? Europe? Asia? Latin America?

Mine says, "Every full rail car keeps 75 to 125 cars off the road", with a pic of one big rail car and a bunch of little ones). Nice! Interesting that it's not the same message on every card; kind of reminds me of collector cards given out in cereal boxes. ("MTA Green Cards: Ride the subway and collect all 10!")
