Curb Your Car results from campus ...

70 Faculty, Staff and Students participated. Don't think we have any total converts - there are a few of us Staff who commute everyday though.

--I have been walking. It is great exercise and I get to enjoy the weather, and the lovely scent of flowers, and rain when it comes.

--I don't own a car, so I curb my car every week! I ride my bike most everywhere and I take the bus too.

--Last Sunday I walked to church (2.2 miles/roundtrip) as well as to the corner store (1.75 miles/roundtrip), and on Monday I caught a ride with my husband and walked to/from his place of employment (1.0 mile/roundtrip)

--I bought a bus pass and took the bus all week.


Oh ---- and whose commuter is by that most awesome and informational display?
