Wanted: Ex-Drivers Eager to Talk About Switching Modes

Transportation Alternatives is looking for a few good sources to help handle all the media requests coming their way these days. Here's how Streetsbloggers can lend a hand:

Every day, T.A. gets calls from reporters in search of commuters who are changing their habits because of high gas prices/financial pressures. These include drivers who have switched some/all of their trips to transit or biking.

We've managed pretty well the last few months, but there are only so many former drivers a livable streets advocate can know! If you're interested in being in our bank of interviewees for reporters, please email Wiley at wiley@transalt.org with your name, contact info and a quick description of your commute.
