Brown and Caldwell in Walnut Creek kicked off Bike to Work Day 2011 with their own Better Way to Work Week. 511 Contra Costa attended the Commuting Information Fair during the week leading up to Bike to Work Day. The fair was intended to give employees on the fence about commute alternatives a push in the right direction.
511 Contra Costa provided information about public transportation, biking/walking trail maps, the Guaranteed Ride Home Program, and our very own Clean Air bags. Brown and Caldwell’s conference room turned into a Bike to Work Day prep shop as coworkers volunteered their time tuning up bikes, making adjustments, and sharing tips on bicycle safety with their fellow colleagues.
511CC even provided $20 incentives to those who pledged to take a commute alternative during Brown and Caldwell’s Better Way to Work Week or beyond. One lucky winner received a BTWD bag filled with goodies and munchies!
Thanks for the invitation Brown and Caldwell–we had fun! And congrats to all that participated during Better Way to Work Week. We hope you continue your green transportation ways!
