I received a $25 Visa gift card in the mail today for walking to work! Moving to Midtown cut my commute by sixty miles and almost three hours each day. Not only am I saving money by using less gas, I’m also rewarded for it by Midtown Transportation Solutions and The Clean Air Campaign through a program called Commuter Rewards.
By logging my walks to work, I’m entered into a monthly drawing for $25 “commuter prizes.” I also receive a $10 Barnes & Noble e-gift card since I log at least 10 walking trips each month. Saving money, time and stress are already great rewards for my clean commute, but who doesn’t love winning prizes too?
