Ever have your face on a poster? I do and frankly it’s kind of disturbing. Although my mom will like it. I was chosen as the “2nd Quarter 2014 All Star Coach” by Spokane County’s Commute Trip Reduction (CTR) program for “demonstrating commitment, advocacy and creativity in promoting and using commute alternatives at SRTC and when talking to the general public.”
Frankly, I don’t feel like I did anything special because I’m just telling people about something I believe in; the CTR program and finding alternative ways to get where you’re going other than driving alone. Plus, it makes it really easy to be successful in promoting CTR when you have a small staff like at SRTC. Of 11 employees, 9 participate in CTR, getting to work by bus, walking, carpool or other means. The other two we just shame.
The cool thing about CTR is that there are incentives to finding alternative transportation. There are lots of prizes and ways they encourage you. If you’re not already using the CTR program, check out their website and see if it’s something that might work for you.
