More than 70,000 people drive to Downtown Orlando (DTO) for their daily commute, and you might even be one of them. Have you considered a different method of getting to work? reThink Your Commute is challenging you to step out of your comfort zone (read: the inside of your car) and embrace different forms of transportation to get you to and from work every third Thursday from July to December.
Courtney Reynolds, reThink Your Commute program manager, in a recent interview with FOX 35 says, “If you work in downtown Orlando you really do have commute options, whether it’s carpooling, transit or other options. That’s what the 2018 Go DTO Downtown Orlando commute challenge is really all about. We want people to make a pledge, make an impact and try something new. And if you need help, we’re here to help you.”
July 19: Telecommute – Skip the office and work from home
August 16: Ride SunRail – Enjoy the view (and free wifi) while you leisurely ride past I-4 traffic
September 20: Carpool – Grab your office buddies and get in an early-morning chat session
October 18: Walk to Work – Crisp autumn air? Yes, please. Walk to work (while utilizing options like SunRail, Juice Bike Share and LYNX, if needed)
November 15: Bike to Work – Get your brain gears turning and head to work using pedal power
December 20: LYNX – Take the LYNX bus and let their drivers do the hard work for you
If you missed July’s pledge, you still have 5 more chances to join in. Do you think that you can tackle them all?
