Ozone season begins March 1 and goes through the
end of November. These nine months are when ground-level ozone, a
common air pollutant, reaches its highest concentration.
During ozone season, think about making a few
simple changes in your daily life: try carpooling or taking the bus,
pack your lunch for work to cut car trips over the lunch hour and avoid
idling. (Hey, even Billy Idol doesn't idle!)
Keep in mind that the level of ozone in Bexar
County recently exceeded what is considered healthy. A broad group of
community partners are working together to reduce ozone, and the MPO is
doing our part. Our 2020 Transportation Conformity Document for Bexar
County estimates the effect of transportation projects and plans on the
region's future air quality. The public in invited to review the
document and comment through Sunday, March 15th.
Mark your calendars! The MPO will be on site at
these upcoming community events. We hope you'll stop by our table and
