April Is Rideshare Month, How Are You Doing Your Part?

Yesterday, the Spokane County Commute Trip Reduction program held a news conference and event to kick off their 'Travel Green' campaign to encourage commuters to take an alternative form of transportation at least once a month in April, which is 'Rideshare Month.'

Today the Spokesman's 'A Matter of Opinion' blog is asking for your bike/ped/bus stories. So get on there and tell 'em, I'm interested to hear how many of you do something besides drive alone to get to work.

I may even contribute my story about the bus driver who finds yellow lights an affront to his sensibilities, which means every time we encounter one everyone's belongings end up in the back of the bus.
