Want to lighten your commute?

GCBL staff  |  07/21/08 @ 9:47am

How much will carpooling, biking or riding the bus reduce the carbon we put into the atmosphere? U.S. EPA figures we produce 29% of our carbon emissions from transportation, and that amount has grown by 47% since 1990.

For the next two weeks, NOACA, our local transportation planning agency, wants to know, can you rethink your commute?

Please, encourage friends and co-workers to find some way not to drive alone. Bus. Bike. Walk. Telecommute. Carpool (find a partner at www.OhioRideShare.com ? it's free, easy, and confidential. Just point, click, & ride!).

And we have bike maps for five counties to view, print, and download.

How? Log on to get information and to tell us about your participation. You can even fill out a tally sheet for a whole group!

Freebies? Get a free one-day transit pass by signing up for Commuter Challenge ? just specify whether you want the RTA pass, the Laketran pass, or the Lorain County Transit pass! Encourage someone you know to give transit a try.
