Bike to Work Day 2015 Logo

 

Riding a bike has many advantages like healthier living, reducing one’s carbon footprint, and an affordable transportation alternative. Biking to work is a great way to fulfill the requirement of 30+ minutes of physical activity per day needed to stay healthy.

Biking is for everyone. You don’t need special clothing, you don’t need special equipment, and you don’t need to already be in shape to take up biking.  All you need to do is find your motivation and jump on.  It could be anything from reducing stress, losing weight, helping diminish global warming, or having bragging rights at the water cooler on the most distance traveled on a bike. Bike riders come in all different shapes and sizes, and no one should feel limited by their size, attire, equipment or speed.  Bike riding is an equalizer and all are accepted.

Bike to Work events will take place throughout the month of May including a Team Bike Challenge and Bike Commuter of the Year Awards. Energizer stations will be set up throughout Solano and Napa counties on Bike to Work Day.

Bike to our Energizer Station to get free snacks, a reusable canvas bag, bicycle information, and good cheer!

Stand Up 4 Transportation!

On April 9, 2015, supporters around the nation are uniting in their communities and online to send a powerful message to Congress: It’s time to provide long-term investment for America’s transportation network.

Only comprehensive, long-term federal funding will enable us to repair, maintain, and adequately expand America’s public transportation, roads, bridges, ports, and rail systems to help bring our national transportation system up to speed with the 21st century.

Short-term, inconsistent funding slows progress and costs America’s taxpayers more in the long run.

How does this affect you, the rider?

 

SolTrans depends on federal funds to operate and maintain local fixed route, commuter express, ADA paratransit, and Dial-a-Ride bus services, as well as the equipment and infrastructure needed to support these services.  In doing so, SolTrans delivers approximately 1.5 million passenger trips every year to work, school, medical appointments, grocery stores, shopping and leisure activities.

Without public transportation, our roads would become increasingly congested with a greater need for repair, and those in our community who rely on buses as their sole means of transportation would be severely impacted.  This includes our parents, grandparents, school students and those with disabilities or low income.  This is why we are asking for your support for long term funding for public transportation.

To read more about it, or sign the petition, please visit www.standup4transportation.org.
