RIDE Solutions and Zagster Inc., in partnership with the City of Roanoke and Carilion Clinic, today launched a new bike share program that will provide all Roanoke’s residents and visitors with a convenient, affordable and healthy way to get around town.
Today’s rainy day has reminded me that I’m behind on a post I meant to write a few weeks ago. Back in October, we worked with the CityWorks (X)po to host a field trip on what turned out to be a rainy Saturday morning. The goal: to give attendees a first-hand experience of what it would be like to be car-free in Roanoke.
A friend of mine recently posted a worksheet her son had completed for a financial literacy program offered by Goodwill of the Valleys. I was impressed with the detail of the sheet; even so, it missed a few things and made a few assumptions I thought worth noting – especially because they misstated the full cost of transportation.
