Spare the Air Youth is a regional program that aims to educate, inspire and empower youth and families in the San Francisco Bay Area to walk, bicycle, carpool, and take transit. A partnership between the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) and the Bay Area Air Quality Management District, Spare the Air Youth seeks to find effective ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions related to transportation while also providing a regional resource for students, parents, teachers and program providers. The program also supports Bay Area Safe Routes to School outreach and encouragement efforts.
We are always seeking new ideas to test or input on current local programs. If you have an innovative idea on ways to encourage youth and their families to use alternative transportation, or would like to tell us about a successful program in your area, please Contact Us.
