Praised by our judges for its creativeness and
inventiveness, the Tulsa Commute Another Way Day garnered great public
attention to the importance of alternative modes of transportation
available to downtown workers. On a mid-June workday, Tulsa’s air
quality and traffic congestion challenges were met by an eager array of
bicyclists, walkers, skaters, carpoolers, bus riders and stay-at-home
Soft Oldies 94.1 broadcast live from downtown and gave away prizes to
the alternative commuters who stopped by to enjoy a continental
breakfast. Enrollment in the Rideshare carpooling program increased 10
percent and visits to the Tulsa Commuter Choice website boomed.
For driving home awareness to a myriad of ways for downtown commuters to help clear the air, TULSA’S COMMUTER CHOICE PROGRAM AND ITS COMMUTE ANOTHER WAY DAY IS GOOD NEWS FOR OKLAHOMA’S AIR QUALITY!
