EFFICIENT TRANSPORTATION …
The Transportation Team initiates projects which create an efficient post transit network and reduce emissions for cleaner air. These projects include the Sustainable Shuttle system, an alternative fueling station, an alternative transportation plan for cyclists and pedestrians and electric vehicles.
Fort Bragg also encourages carpooling!
To reduce emissions (and save fuel in your vehicle), Fort Bragg supports a no-idle policy. Please … turn off your ignition when your vehicle is in park.
KEEPING YOUR VEHICLE FUEL EFFICIENT AND CONSERVING GASOLINE …
- Ensure that your tires are properly inflated.
- Perform regularly scheduled maintenance on your vehicle
- Ensure that your gas cap fits properly.
- Fuel your vehicle early in the morning or early in the evening to reduce gasoline evaporation.

- Avoid aggressive driving, idling, speeding, hard braking and rapid acceleration.
- Use cruise control on the highway.
- Choose a more fuel efficient vehicle.
- Consider hybrid and electric vehicles.

When fully implemented, travelers may commence and end their journeys on the installation with no need for a personal automobile.
