Have you dumped the pump in favor of alternate forms of transportation?  If so you’re not alone.  In 2012, more than 10 percent of Indianapolis households were completely car-free.  More and more households are changing their commuting patterns in favor of multi-modal forms of transportations.  We couldn’t be happier about this trend towards a more sustainable Indy.

This summer, May – August, we challenged the community to go “Car-Free Indy.”  We encouraging residents to ride their bikes, ride the bus and walk instead of driving.  During the campaign, residents created a profile, set a goal and tracked their progress.  Almost 300 people participated in the Car-Free Indy Campaign this summer, logging over 37,000 miles total!

Thank you to all those who participated.  We’ve chosen at random one grand prize winner and three runners-up.  I hope that all of you continue to walk, bike and bus throughout the fall and winter months.

Congratulations Morgan Hunt!
