DriveLessLiveMore featured in Chicago Tribune
Last month, Active Trans and RTA launched www.drivelesslivemore.com — a year-round, multimodal commuter challenge website that will boost the ranks of people who choose active transportation options in the region.
Today, a great piece about the new initiative appeared in the Chicago Tribune (account required). The article, The challenge is on to alter commuting habits, 1 by 1, was written by Jon Hilkevitch, the paper's transportation reporter.
In the article, Hilkevitch quotes a lawyer named Steve Shonder who lives in Berwyn and either bikes or takes Metra to his Loop office.
Shonder said he decided to participate in DriveLessLiveMore as a way to encourage others in his office to consider better commuting options.
I hate to proselytize about things, but instead try to lead by example, said Shonder. The commuter challenge will raise awareness and provide an opportunity to shoot an email to a colleague suggesting they take a look at it.
Oh, and don't forget that participants can win prizes. Here are some of the new prizes:
- One-year Active Trans membership w/ Chicagoland Bike Map
- I Go Carsharing membership and/or driving credit
