If Earth Day has you searching for a way to make a positive impact on the planet, consider stepping away–at least sometimes–from something that has one of the most devastating effects: your car. As part of the transportation sector, cars and trucks generate a large share of greenhouse gas emissions; more than 25%. Fortunately, Long Beach has numerous alternative forms of transportation–scooters to shuttles to buses–using everything from electricity to natural gas to get you where you need to go in a much more Earth-friendly way.
METRO A LINE (BLUE)
The A or Blue Line was Metro’s first rail line. Opened in 1990, it provides rail service between Downtown Los Angeles and Downtown Long Beach, just a block from Ocean Boulevard. The Blue Line can be used to access such popular destinations as the Aquarium of the Pacific, Queen Mary and Long Beach Beach Performing Arts Center, as well as Crypto.com Center and the Los Angeles Music Center. Metro reduces far more greenhouse gas emissions than it generates and has set a goal of being completely carbon neutral by the year 2050.
