The Sustainable Transport Club is dedicated to creating a system of transportation based on renewable energy by way of outreach and education, community organizing, and by helping our members to use sustainable transport in their daily lives.
People all over the country are creating a movement toward using electric vehicles and other alternatives to high priced gasoline. The Club is working to help foster and support sustainable transportation by connecting these people and groups and by building local chapters.
“We want to bring together people who are passionate about a whole range of alternatives to gas-hogging transportation, including bicycles, electric cars, motor-scooters and bikes, bio-diesels, plug in hybrids and mass transit,”
“Learn how you can become part of our effort.”
The Club works when our people do what they can, when they can, to help create a sustainable future. Many of these people are working in groups dedicated to one specific part of the solution.
By connecting these various groups we increase the base of support for any one project and we are moving toward a vision that combines all these elements into a fully sustainable future.
The diverse interests of the group illustrate the nature of the solution as being one that has many pieces to the puzzle. The group is working to develop each of these pieces and to explore how they fit together to create the comprehensive whole that will carry us into the future.
We know that the pieces within the urban context include bicycles, electric vehicles powered by solar, bio mass fuels, rail based mass transit, converting green waste into energy and breaking the grip that the automobile has on our culture. In addition to these large challenges there are many others including the smaller parts that will also play important roles.
The Sustainable Transport Club is bringing people and groups together to do this work through grassroots community action. The work is on going on several levels including developing the technology, establishing the businesses that support the sustainable solutions and having the government facilitate the effort in the many roles that they play.

Creating a Sustainable Transport System
Community Groups Thinking Globally and
One of the central efforts for the club is the City of Santa Monica Project. The idea behind this project is to create a Local Sustainable Transport System
This project will show Southern California how transportation can be sustained beyond our dependence on foreign oil. The City has some great activists, city staff, and local representatives working together to bring this about. We need as many people as possible to get on board with this program. That is a really good reason to get involved.
But what if you do not live in Santa Monica? This project will be a good example of how to get your local area moving in the same sustainable direction. We encourage people to start making contact with as many like-minded people in their area. When you get a few people interested in this then let us know and we can help you to build that and move forward from there.

Stop Oil Dependence
Our activities and other details from before 2007 are on the old site. Check that for more info.
Stop Oil Dependence
Recent developments have shown that our dependence on imported oil is undermining our economy and making a recovery difficult. Our dependence is keeping us from creating the jobs we need. Oil Dependence is threatening the future for our children and our country.
Please read the Stop Oil Dependence section, as our country will be better off when all of us have a more informed opinion on this subject.
If you think we have this handled because we have a few EVs coming to the market, then please consider that EVs will be sold in the tens of thousands. The annual sale of gas vehicles is close to ten million vehicles and there are 255-million gas and diesel vehicle on the road.
We are far from done with our work.
