In another effort to improve traveler and worker safety along the 18-mile long construction zone of Interstate 25 between Monument and Castle Rock, rush-hour travelers now can help maximize their commute time by taking advantage of I-25 MyWay, a new partnership between the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) and the Denver Regional Council of Governments. I-25 MyWay is offering transit, vanpool and carpool incentives to commuters willing to try a new mode of transportation between Colorado Springs and Denver.
Winter Bike to Work Day is Feb. 8, 2019! Please commit to riding and help us put Colorado on the world map as champions of bike commuting. The site is winterbiketoworkday.org, and making a commitment is simple and quick.
Bustang, the Colorado Department of Transportation’s interregional express bus service, begins service between Colorado Springs and the Denver Tech Center (DTC) Monday, Dec. 17, 2018. In addition to serving one of the largest employment centers along the Front Range, expanding the number of trips between the two cities will help to relieve commuter traffic along Interstate 25, including the 18-mile Gap segment currently under construction between Monument and Castle Rock.
Congratulations to all the companies who participated in the 2018 Go-Tober challenge! Fifty-eight companies throughout the metro area participated in our annual friendly competition to see which could get their employees to log the most commutes by transit, carpool, on their bikes or their feet. Of those, more than 2,000 took at least one trip during the month of October using a method other than driving alone, and 1,899 made the goal of at least one day per week.
