Want to save money, feel better, and do some good? And possibly win some very cool prizes? Then join us as we tackle the Car-Free Challenge from September 12 – 25. Replace as many trips as you can that you drive alone in a vehicle with walking, bicycling, taking the bus or carpooling. The more days you go car-free the better your chance at winning some cool prizes, including an iPad. Find out more at http://carfreechallenge.wordpress.com/
You can do this! Really!
Don’t think you can? All it takes is some planning ahead of time. We will be offering tips the next 2 weeks on how to do this. It may not be just one mode of transportation that gets you to where you need to go but a combination of walking and taking the bus, or bicycling and taking the bus (bike racks on the buses), or carpooling and walking. Need a car to get around to your work appointments during the day? Could you leave your car at work and use a different mode to get to and from work?
The Mayor of Cortland is doing this and you can too.
