Leave the Car at HOME

Leave the Car at HOMEYou don't have to wait for Bike to Work Day to start saving gas and helping protect the environment. Leaving the car at home simply one day a week would cut gas consumption 14%. It's like saving $0.45 per gallon when you fill up at the pump. There are plenty of alternatives to your car – ride your bike, carpool with a neighbor, take the METRO Park & Ride or hop on the 75 Eldridge Crosstown to work. If you haven't heard, the 75 Eldridge Crosstown is an efficient, convenient option for commutes along Eldridge Parkway from the Mission Bend Park & Ride Lot at Westpark Tollway to the Addicks Park & Ride Lot on I-10 Freeway. For route information, visit www.75eldridge.org

Just a few of the advantages to leaving the car at home include:

  • Reducing emissions to help the environment
  • Saving gas & mileage
  • Burning calories
  • Not having to stress about traffic
  • Meeting new people
  • Reading a book, listening to music, or just relaxing on the way to and from work
