Introducing MDOT’s Ride-Share Wally
The Michigan Department of Transportation launched its alternative transportation promotion recently with this ride-sharing PSA video of Wally–the aggravated with congestion and time-spent driving commuter.
What do you think?
There is a resource of ride-share information for the state on .Gov’s website. NW Lower Michigan isn’t served by an MDOT Ride-share office, although a few park and ride lots (map below) are available for those interested in starting a slugging movement (casual carpooling) and there is a MichiVan Program in the north. With heavy construction on Traverse City’s Division St. this summer, it is a great opportunity to try using these lots.
Also, if you’re a resident of TC and have friends who commute solo into the city everyday, introduce them to a friend, or two or three that they can can carpool with–reduce traffic into the city!
