Curb Your Car Week
Spring 2013 edition: May 12–18
The Curb Your Car Week program encourages the use of cheaper, healthier, and more earth-friendly transportation alternatives.
During one week in spring and one week in fall, ColorBrightonGreen.org asks residents from Brighton and around, who normally use an automobile for daily transportation, to consider walking, biking, car pooling, or riding the bus as alternatives.
The Spring 2013 event concluded on May 18, 2013.
Prizes will be awarded to high mileage savers, and randomly to participants. Prizes may include environmental books for children and adults, home energy audits, energy saving small appliances such as lighting, donated by area businesses.
Ride a bike
- Save 2-4 gallons of gas on your 10-20 mile daily commute; that’s enough to treat yourself to a great lunch!
- Get in shape for free and put that gym time to better use.
- Some routes are easier and safer: view/print this map in a new window.
- It may not be as far as you think.
- Share a care with a neighbor, colleague, or friend.
Ride the bus
Several routes cross through Brighton:
- Make one day (or more) a work-from-home day if your job involves phoning and computers, or projects you can pack up. One day at home each week could save you about $175 a year.
