Technology Drives Youth to Go Green

Oregon Car DriversASHLAND, Ore. — A report by an Oregon group shows technology is driving youth to go green when traveling.

OSPIRG found technology is helping people find alternative transportation methods, through social networking sites and apps on smartphones.

The group found the accessibility and easy connections are making it possible for people to car-pool or find bike-sharing stations.

“It’s been a study for years on just the impacts of these technologies on our driving habits. So, it has been a whole Oregon-based study,” said OSPIRG Coordinator Cheryl Carlich.
