Amid the news of cuts, closures and general decline in city services, the City of Colorado Springs Metro Rides division announced a positive new addition to the transportation scene last week.
Click here to visit Metro Rides' new carpool matching site. In short:
We can help you find alternative transportation for your daily commute. Register and log-in to find carpools, vanpools, bus routes, and bicycling information. You can also track the method of your daily commute using our commute calendar.
Also, in an announcement sent out last Thursday by the Green Cities Coalition, Metro Rides reminds that many people have been affected by bus service cuts. So if beyond carpooling, you're willing to drive folks to places you're not even going, call Lori McGinnis at the Pikes Peak Area Council of Governments at 471-7080, ext. 108.
