Alternative Transportation

Public Transportation

Using mass transit to commute or get around is a great way to live green. Using public transportation helps reduce pollution and traffic associated with conventional vehicle travel.

Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) provides light rail, bus and on-demand mobility options in Plano.

Walking and Biking

Utilize two legs or two wheels to get around the City. Plano has over 1,600 miles of sidewalks and 70 miles of recreational trail to help you get some exercise on the way to your destination.

Try Parking It is a ride-match and trip-logging program available for commuters in North Central Texas. You can locate carpool and vanpool matches, along with transit, biking and walking buddy matches.

The more active you are the more prizes you can redeem.

Alternative Fuel Vehicles

Hybrid Vehicles: Contain a gas-powered engine along with an electric motor and battery. The battery is charged by capturing the energy when braking.

Plug-In Hybrid Vehicles (PHEVs): Contain a gas-powered engine along with an electric motor and larger battery. The battery is charged by plugging into an outlet or EV charger. PHEVs will drive solely using electricity until the battery is depleted at which time the vehicle drives like a conventional hybrid, running on gasoline.

Electric Vehicles (EVs): Contain an electric motor and larger battery, but do not have a gas-powered engine. The battery is charged by plugging into an outlet or EV charger.  EVs have a range between 100- 260 miles on a full charge.

Interested in purchasing an electric vehicle or a plug-in hybrid? See if you qualify for Federal tax credits ranging up to $7,500.
