Keeping Edmonton's air clean is good for the environment, good for our health and good for our wallets. The City of Edmonton is doing its part by introducing hybrid and clean diesel buses to the ETS fleet, reducing the amount of greenhouse gases produced by City buildings and implementing new policies to reduce the emissions of City vehicles.
As individuals, we can improve Edmonton's air quality by changing our driving habits, taking public transit to work or carpooling.
