Words to the wise
Check out this excerpt from a memo sent by the TriMet transportation agency to its regional partners in ( you guessed it) Portland Oregon, and we quote:
” Avoid calling walking bicycling, and transit “alternative modes”. They are used by almost everyone to promote health, save money, avoid congestion, and reduce oil dependence. INSTEAD SIMPLY SAY “walking, bicycling and transit.”
Sounds obvious doesn’t it ? Well, in auto addicted cities of the Southeast, that is not always the case. (Thanks to John Cock of Alta Design for sending this along).
