Plan Hillsborough, staff to the Planning Commission, Hillsborough MPO, and Hillsborough River Interlocal Planning Board, celebrated their first-ever Commuter Challenge Week on March 27th – March 31st. Taking the challenge to use alternatives to driving alone to commute to work, travel to off site meetings, or go to lunch, our staff got into the friendly competition with the majority participating. Many went the extra mile by riding the bus, streetcar, walking, biking, and taking the Downtowner. An eye opening experience, many of our planners now can say they literally have walked the walk… as explained by Tony LaColla of our staff in his Day 1 Commuter Challenge video.
A special shout out to Tindale Oliver for inspiring our challenge and graciously sharing their tips and tracking spreadsheets. Not only did we experience incredible results, but also our Commuter Challenge Week was featured on a BayNews9 ‘Getting There’ segment with Chuck Henson.
