Streamline plays a key role in reducing our community’s overall carbon emissions now and in the future. By design, public transit reduces the number of single occupancy vehicles on our streets, which in turn decreases our community’s overall tail-pipe emissions. Since tail-pipe emissions are the largest contributor to greenhouse gases, Streamline is needed now more than ever. Thus, HRDC and Streamline staff have developed short- and long-term goals that demonstrate Streamline’s commitment to ensuring a sustainable future for the Gallatin Valley.
Streamline’s short-term sustainability goals are all centered around increasing ridership. More riders on Streamline leads to fewer vehicles on our roads and reduced tail-pipe emissions in our community.
Streamline’s long-term goals are focused on adapting new sustainable infrastructure and technology as well as coordinating with local governments on transit-friendly developments and land use policies.
