News-Press Editorial: Look for new ways to travel
News-Press April 19, 2011
Remember that, through April 23, you can
take part in a campaign experimenting with
alternatives to the automobile.
"Taking it to The Streets" is backed by a
coalition of government and private groups
urging Southwest Floridians to walk, bike,
carpool or use public transportation.
Encouraging such alternatives can improve
our health and environment, reduce road
congestion and save money.
Employers might help their workers with
carpool parking or discounted transit fares.
Call 866-585-RIDE for worksite analysis
and carpool ride matches. LeeTran
provides a trip planner; visit the website:
On Tuesday, LeeTran will offer free rides
all day to celebrate "Try Transit Day."
