Located on the South Fork of Long Island The Town of East Hampton is home to about 21,000 residents living in an approximately 20 square mile area with world class beaches, over 200 miles of trails and four beautiful downtowns - Amagansett Village, East Hampton Village, Montauk and Sag Harbor Village. The Town, led by Environmental Analyst, Lauren Steinberg, launched the Town of East Hampton Transportation Innovation Series in April to further their 100% renewable energy goals. With vehicle related emissions making up close to 40% of Long Island’s greenhouse gas emissions, this three-part series armed residents with tools and resources to explore alternatives.
The first webinar in collaboration with Transit Solutions provided an overview of all sustainable mobility options throughout the town including public transit, the Hampton Jitney, local electric shuttle service Circuit, bike rental shops, and walking resources. It ended with a fun game of BINGO designed to celebrate greener mobility.
The second webinar in collaboration with Drive Electric Long Island was for residents thinking of buying or leasing an electric vehicle. Long Island is the State’s leader in EV adoption. Many people are seeing the benefits of EVs over gasoline engines, from lower maintenance and operating costs, to reducing our impact on the environment. Residents learned all about the benefits of EVs and heard from East Hampton EV owners what it is really like to own and drive an electric vehicle.
The third webinar was in collaboration with USGBC-LI’s new Let’s Move LI Active Transportation Initiative. The Town of East Hampton, joined by Transit Solutions, USGBC-LI Sustainable Transportation Committee and the Suffolk County Planning Department shared the benefits of active transportation as well as over 200 miles of walking and biking trails, shop, dine, and stroll routes within each of the four downtowns, and future hiking and biking plans.
