Millions of Texans are expected to travel this summer. As people start getting out and about again, it is important to remember that small changes can have a substantial impact on the environment. Whether you plan to soak in the sun at South Padre Island, hike the Guadalupe Peak, road trip through Amarillo, float down the Comal, stroll down San Antonio’s Riverwalk, or swim at Devil's Waterhole, there are small actions that can help us all Take Care of Texas.
Traveling from Point A to Point B is one of the most crucial parts of travel and tourism. There are many ways to travel around the great state of Texas, so consider which type of transportation makes the most sense for your trip.
- Avoid idling if you’re taking a road trip. Save gas by turning off your vehicle when you need to make a stop. Idling longer than 30 seconds uses more fuel than restarting the engine.
- Remember to service your vehicle regularly and properly inflate your tires to improve gas mileage and ensure safety on the road.
- Take direct flights when flying and pack light, when possible, to reduce emissions.
