Do something. Pick an activity that supports alternative forms of transportation. It can as simple as giving your feedback: Taking it to the Streets survey
We’ve also included a growing list of fun activities you can do at work, school, on weekends, with friends, family and co-workers. Taking it to the Streets is a huge opportunity for the region to come together, to improve the way everyone gets around.
Next, prove it! Track the activity using Trip Track, by Commuter Services. Trip Track is an online system that will calculate VMRs (vehicle miles reduced), reductions in carbon emissions and particulate matter that cause smog – directly affecting the air we breathe, as well as savings calculations for fuel and maintenance. Next, email and post images of your activities; show your support by Taking it to the Streets in social media. Be seen!

Consider biking or walking:
If you own a bicycle, dust off the seat, air up your tires, spray the rusty spots, grab your helmet and hit the streets.
If you don’t own a bicycle, you can get something decent for the price of two tanks of gas.
If you’re one or two miles from your destination, think: is this drive necessary?

Join a group
Go to your social groups and spread the word
Get at least one person join the challenge with you

Face your excuses:
