Let's celebrate everyone who walks and bikes and shares a ride.  Log two trips between May 1 through 16th to be entered to win great prizes. Learn more about the challenge and stay tuned for more prize announcements at www.connectingcommuters.org/waytogo

 

ENCOURAGE LOCAL STORIES

I find the best results are stories from local folks, a picture, a short fun video posted on FB or FPF of a walking, rolling, biking bus or telework experience.  Please add a button or notice on your site and send out to your list servs to help spread the word.  Its Go! Time and time for the big push. Thank you in advance for what you do and are doing for transportation efficiency. We couldn't do this without you.  If you happen to know of a local calendar to add this event to, please do so or let us know and we'll get a notice out.
