Educating Commuters On Their Options

This came to my attention via the Next Generation Urbanists email list this morning. It’s a great video showing people their options for their daily commute.

Cities tackle traffic head-on with commuter options – USATODAY.com.

As one who used to drive everywhere up until a few years ago, I know from personal experience how easy it is to get trapped in the habit of auto-mobility. There are options out there: transit, cycling, walking, or, more realistically, a combination of some or all of these. We need to do a better job of educating people as to what their options are and not only the cost savings, but the health and environmental benefits as well.

Take a look at the video and give me your thoughts in the comments.
