News and Announcements

Welcome!

Welcome to the first edition of the new Way to Go quarterly newsletter! As a program of the Denver Regional Council of Governments (DRCOG), a major part of Way
to Go’s mission is to reduce vehicle miles traveled by single-occupant vehicles (SOVs). That, in turn, reduces traffic congestion and improves our air quality. Pretty
important stuff, right?
