OZONE FACTS: Vehicles account for 50% of air pollution nationwide. Compared to private vehicles public transportation produces 95% less carbon monoxide (CO), 92% fewer volatile organic compounds (VOCs), 50% less carbon dioxide (CO2) and nitrogen oxides (NOx) for every passenger mile traveled. Public transportation can truly play a key role in reducing pollution. Every driver who rides the bus to work is doing their part to improve our local air quality!
The Ozone Alert Program brings citizens, business, industry and government in the Tulsa area together to voluntarily reduce ozone-forming emissions on days when the area is vulnerable to high ozone levels.
