The weatherman is calling for sun and temperatures in the 80s tomorrow, so, in celebration of Dump the Pump Day, take the opportunity to ditch your car and try commuting a little differently. Catch some early morning fresh air on your bike or let somebody else do the driving on TARC.
To find a good route to bike to work, check out Ride the City, which let’s you choose Safer, Safe or Most Direct routes based on your comfort level. Ride the City also offers a mobile app for iPhone.
Live too far from work to ride the whole way? TARC buses are all equipped with bike racks so you can bike to the bus and ride the rest of the way or vice versa. Don’t know how to use the bike racks? Mr. Theo and the TARCettes have you covered.
If you live close to a TARC stop, maybe you can even ride the whole way. Check out TARC’s online trip planner to find the best way to get to work on the bus. The bus fare is $1.50 and transfers are free.
While you won’t be able to arrange it in time for tomorrow, take a look at KIPDA’s Ticket to Ride vanpool program.
Will you be Dumping the Pump tomorrow? What could Louisville do to give people incentives to ditch the car on the commute?
