A special thanks to everyone who helped to make Massachusetts Car-Free Week 2013 a big success! Throughout the Commonwealth, commuters have reduced 35,197 car trips and saved over $270,000 dollars in one week! Below is a photo from a MassRIDES worksite partner event. MassRIDES is the statewide sustainable transportation options program and partners with organizations like Harvard Pilgrim Healthcare to provide their employees with program benefits and resources.
Congratulations to MassDOT on their Car-Free Week success! Together, we have saved 8 tons of emissions from entering our environment; kept $9,877 in our pockets by commuting green; and have reduced 1,156 car trips in one week!
