February 2019 Walk/Ride Day Newsletter
Dear Green Streets friend,
The ice and snow are melting! Celebrate Walk/Ride Day by logging a commute and sharing your commute story!
Did you see the news: Boston is now the most congested US city due to the time and money lost to sitting in traffic (see INRIX's 2018 Global Traffic Scorecard for more).
How do you endure or beat the traffic? Share your story here to inform and inspire others and join the conversation on our Facebook page.
Save the Date!
April 11 is our Annual Awards Ceremony: celebrate the achievements of our community and our thirty 2018 Commuter Challenge workplace participants. The event takes place at Cambridge City Hall at 4 pm and is hosted by the Office of Mayer McGovern.
On February 24, join us to celebrate the life of Paula Sharaga. Her Ghost Bike Ceremony will start at 2 pm at the intersection of Brookline Avenue and Park Drive.
Question of the Month
Many thanks to the more than 300 of you who shared how you commute in the winter weather. Forty percent opt for transit, 15% use a car, and 15% stay home.
This month's question asks about your favorite charity. Green Streets is exploring incentivizing check-ins with a charity donation funded by sponsors. What do you think?
Register your workplace for the Commuter Challenge
Our team is gearing up for the 2019 Green Streets Commuter Challenge and we hope you are too. Verify that your workplace is registered and ready to go! If not, we have plenty of info on our website and you can register here.
We are also seeking sponsors at all levels. Check out our sponsorship brochure here.
Please stay in touch and have a great March!
