Net Zero Vermont is empowering Vermonters to leave their cars at home and walk to complete errands through the Walk to Shop project. Survey results show that trolley owners are indeed displacing car trips! If you participated in this program, let us know your trolley experiences. Are you walking more, leaving your car at home, riding the bus with your trolley?

Chittenden County Regional Planning Commission awards Net Zero Vermont a two-year UPWP grant to advance its work to engage all Vermonters–to encourage more people to walk more often using a shopping trolley and to raise awareness about the 15-minute neighborhood, active mobility, transit and food security.
