Gets around by: Walk, Bike and Car
Where do you live and where do you work?
Live and work in the Hilltop Neighborhood.
How do you get there?
Walk mostly. I’ll bike when it’s a nice day and I have a couple of other things to do in the neighborhood or nearby. I drive when I have meetings on the other side of town or in another city.
How does it all add up? How much money and time do you save?
I save on gas, probably one fill up a month. No significant time savings.
What’s in it for you?
Enjoyment, fresh air, 5 minutes of solitude from my busy house to work. Plus, I like to be as sustainable as I can.
Do you have any tips for people who might be trying this mode for the first time?
Know your route ( hills can add time to your commute), prepare for rain or sun, and watch out for distracted drivers.
