The automobile is a major source of air pollution which contributes significantly to lead, carbon monoxide, hydrocarbon, nitrogen dioxide and ozone concentrations. On May 31, 1990, Calgary Transit initiated a program during Environment Week entitled the A.I.R. Calgary Program. The A.I.R. Program is designed to reduce the number of single occupancy private vehicles on city roads. The program encourages motorists to use an alternative to their automobile, that is to walk, cycle, car pool, or ride Calgary Transit two days every month. A.I.R. Calgary numbers are announced daily in both local newspapers and local radio stations. When the number matches the last number of a motorist's license plate, it is that person's turn to leave their car at home.
