The Green Choice
FUN FACT: if just 10% of long-haul freight now being moved by truck moved by rail instead, national fuel savings would exceed one billion gallons a year and annual greenhouse gas emissions would drop by more than 12 million tons. That’s equivalent to taking 2 million cars off the road or planting 280 million trees.
DID YOU KNOW railroads have a “common carrier” obligation to carry hazardous materials. That means that, unlike all other modes of transportation, railroads are required by the federal government to transport these materials.
