Welcome to 2014 Drive Less,
Gear up to Walk, Bike and Bus To It and
Drive Less, Live More!
Last year's Drive Less Live More Campaign was a success with hundreds of people powered by alternative transportation showing up to the many great events through the season.
With the 2014 campaign, we will again offer the Bike to Work Day pancake breakfast, a River (bike) Ride, Quit the Car Habit - Dump the Pump Day, and Bike or Carpool to the Dragons games.
What is Drive Less, Live More?
Drive Less Live More is your connection to healthier, cleaner, more affordable transportation choices within the Greater Dayton Region.
As Americans we love our cars. We think nothing of driving less than a mile to the bank, the store or even from one parking lot to another at a shopping center.
As our waistlines – and our dependence on foreign oil – increase, the quality of our life and air decrease. But it’s not as if we are trying to pollute our environment or be less active, it’s just become second nature to grab the keys and go.
But there is a better way. Residents of the Greater Dayton Region have a variety of travel options – biking, walking, riding regional transit, or carpooling.
The Miami Conservancy District, Miami Valley Regional Planning Commission, Greater Dayton RTA and Five Rivers MetroParks have teamed up to bring you the Drive Less Live More campaign where you can save money (see how much money it really costs to drive your car with compute your commute, get fit, win prizes and improve the air you breathe.
