Green Streets Visits Volpe and Latest Updates
Green Streets and Volpe
Green Streets stopped by US DOT Volpe Center's Green Week yesterday to talk about Walk Ride Day, the Corporate Challenge and active commuting. We were happy that Volpe invited us to their lunch time tabling event, as we were able to chat with our partners at Zipcar and got a few active commuting pledges for June's Walk Ride Day. Watch out Volpe's competition - we think they are going to take the leader board by storm this month!
It was great to let people know that they can be rewarded on Walk Ride Day by our retail partners in Cambridge. Did you know that Toscanini's gives out free ice cream on Walk Ride Day? Replace those lost calories from your active commute with local ice cream!
Green Streets and Green Drinks
Don't forget to mark your calendars for June 26, where we will team up with Boston Green Drinks to socialize and network with a few of Boston's amazing green-ovators at Kingston Station. RSVP here: Boston Green Drinks This happens to be a few days before Walk Ride Day - so you can size up your competitors in the Walk Ride Day Corporate Challenge!
A Call to Volunteers
We are actively seeking data enthusiasts who love to analyze data. We know you're out there :) The data we are looking to have analyzed on a regular basis is our monthly participation numbers. Melissa, the Boston Walk Ride Day Coordinator has been doing this the past few months, and her time with Green Streets is ending at the end of June - so we need someone to pick this up in July. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
