Studies show that
one of the most common barriers to the use of public transportation is an unfamiliarity with the system.
In response to this, communities have implemented “ambassador” programs where experienced riders show new residents “how” to plan a route, find the bus, etc.
We’re assuming the same is true of biking.
So that’s what we’re creating – we want to make bike commuting an accessible option for those looking to make the switch.
On the second Tuesday of each month we’ll meet the Scientific Aviation office (Boulder Municipal Airport) and we’ll provide pizza, socializing and a presentation.
New commuters will have the opportunity to meet and chat with seasoned riders to learn how they deal with the challenges of bike commuting, and hopefully come away with the confidence and tools to be a regular bike commuter.
