Getting Around Without A Car

The vast majority of traveling across much of our region is done by car. 

And that's due in part to limited public transportation. 

But efforts continue to separate our steering wheels from our hands, both in public transit and expanded options for people using alternative means like bicycles. 

Rogue Valley Transportation District (RVTD) will challenge businesses to reduce car trips later this spring in the Rogue Commute Challenge.  Edem Gómez from the agency joins us. 

We also hear about Bike/Walk Roseburg from Dick Dolganas, and get a statewide overview from Jenna Stanke Marmon, who serves on the Oregon Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee.  Put the car keys aside and join the chat.
