We intuitively know that commuting with public transportation is a lower-stress, eco-friendly, and healthier option. Now, WMATA provides a tool that allows you to calculate your precise impact from door-to-door.
Simply enter your starting and ending address into WMATA's Greenhouse Gas Emissions Savings Calculator and out comes your total GHG savings, calories burned and suggested bus/metro route. Double these numbers for a morning and evening round-trip.
Our example: commuting round-trip from Vienna to Bethesda by public transportation every work day for a year would offset the carbon equivalent of planting 25 trees. You'd also save over 130,000 calories, the equivalent of 650 vanilla lattes.

EYA has long been a proponent of life within walking distance, in which homeowners enjoy easy access to transportation, recreation, shopping, and dining. And increasingly, new homeowners are seeking walkable lifestyles even in the suburbs.
Now more than ever, homeowners are seeking walkable communities that promote sustainable and convenient lifestyles. Today’s buyers want to ditch the commute and live within walking distance to shops, restaurants, parks and other urban amenities.
