Think you can't live without your car? Think again! A team from the Chapter has agreed to drive less in June as part of the 'Car-Free Challenge.' The Challenge is the brainchild of TransForm, an Oakland-based coalition that advocates for public transportation and better walking and biking options. Each Challenger set personal low-mileage and fundraising goals. No doubt some Challengers combined transportation options to achieve their goals — and bypassed many a gas station! Read about the results in the next issue. If you have experiences to share, send them to newsletter@lomaprieta.sierraclub.org. For more about TransForm and the Challenge, visit transformca.org.
