Transportation for Livable Communities

350Vermont's transportation initiative is focused on transforming Vermont's transportation system to strengthen community, improve health and opportunity for all people, foster a sound economy, and protect our natural resources.

Fossil Fuel Freedom

Because energy is the framework of society, our vision of our energy future is really a vision of our future society. Formulas that consider the well-being of the few at the expense of the planet cannot be used to shape the future we seek.
