Win fun prizes for…riding the bus??
I’ve already mentioned #30daysofbiking on this blog – and failed to mention that I will be participating this year, yay! – but there is another transportation-related challenge happening in April for folks that don’t have biking as an option: the Metro Transit Commuter Challenge! With rising gas prices, using public transportation is a great way to keep costs down as well as fit in some extra exercise and reduce your carbon footprint. I particularly love how little attention I need to pay on the bus – I can read the paper, solve Sudoku puzzles or take a little cat nap and still get where I need to go! If you pledge online at mycommuterchallenge.org in April and track your trips on buses, trains, carpools or bike trips, you’ll be entered to win a plethora of prizes including all sorts of new tech gadgets like Kindles and iPads. Check it out!
