State aims to drive up bike, transit use

In a concerted effort to get people off the highway and onto trains, bikes, and their own two feet, the state has announced plans to triple the share of noncar travel by 2030, a long-range goal officials said would cut emissions of greenhouse gases and improve overall public health.
