DontFlyGo.com has been fighting the good fight for sustainable and ecologically sound modes of transportation since its inception. And while the site has increased in scope to talk about many different methods of travel, the overarching ethos has remained the same. We are keen advocates of ground transportation.
But while we believe responsible travellers and holiday makers should always look to make plans around alternative modes of transport to commercial airline travel, we appreciate it’s not entirely easy. 2013 was another great year for air travel, with more than 3 billion people criss-crossing the world on flights. What that communicates is that the lure of air travel is as big as ever.
This article provides some reminders about what options are out there in terms of ground transportation. Although it’s a tough fight to fly the flag for these transportation modes in the face of the glamour of air travel, it’s definitely worth a shot. Here are some of the key ways we hope you travel in the year ahead.
