Riffing off National Bike to Work Day, Curb the Car Day embraces all forms of non-drive-alone commutes: biking, walking, taking transit, telecommuting, carpooling, vanpooling, and more.
Seven workplaces participated in the event, with participants receiving free breakfast snacks, coffee, and swag. See some event photos below!
One organizer-participant — Erin from the Upper Valley Haven — penned this poem to rouse interest among her coworkers and other commuters traveling by the Haven’s Curb the Car Day station on Route 5 in Wilder:
Curb Your Car Day is tomorrow,
Ride your bike and you won’t feel sorrow.
Take the bus, walk or carpool,
Trust me, you will be SO cool!
A light breakfast will be served on site,
So come have a little bite.
Afterwards you can take a shower
And bask in all your power.
