According to Arizona Commerce Authority, "with 18,661 square miles, Coconino is the second largest county in the United States and the largest in Arizona, but is one of the most sparsely populated." For this reason, public transit is a challenge. NAIPTA (Northern Arizona Intergovernmental Transportation Authority) is the transit agency in northern Arizona operating the Mountain Line, Mountain Lift and Mountain Link systems in the Flagstaff area.
Coconino County employees receive Mountain Line's ecoPass upon employment, which allows them to use the Mountain Line bus transit, free of charge. The County Sustainability team encourages employees to carpool and bike to work, when feasible, and to reduce idling. The County also participates in Bike to Work week in May.
