Earth Day is coming up on April 22, and there are some great events going on around town to help get you into the green mindset.
Capital Metro and Earth Day Austin are planning an Earth Day 2017 event at Huston-Tillotson that will help you cut your carbon footprint and include fun activities. At the Transportation Pavilion, exhibitors will help you learn how to add walking, biking, transit, car sharing, ride sharing, carpooling or vanpooling to your daily commute. At the pavilion, find commuting resources, a bike valet and repair station, a sneak peak of emerging transportation projects, the modern vehicle showcase, mobile app assistance and help to create a customized trip plan. PLUS, pledge to cut your carbon by changing your commute at least once a week, and you’ll be invited to make it official on the Graffiti Bus!
Speaking of the GRAFITTI BUS…..
Here’s how it works:
1) Visit with a Transportation Pavilion exhibitor.
2) Make a pledge to cut your carbon by changing your commute AT LEAST once a week.
3) Capital Metro will calculate how much carbon your new commute will save.
4) Take your carbon savings to the Graffiti Bus and make your pledge public!
And how better to get there than by making it a transit adventure? Capital Metro is providing free day passes and running increased frequency on the #4 bus all day long. If you’re a first time bus rider, join the transit adventure group for a fun and easy ride to and from the Earth Day festivities.
