Commuter Services of Pennsylvania invites area commuters to get out and try bicycling during the month of May. Not only is bicycling a great way to stay fit, bikers can also save money from not driving their cars. In 2021, local bicyclists recorded their bike trips in the free rideshare and rewards program, Commute PA. These efforts took 21,651 miles off Pennsylvania’s roads, saving 969 gallons of gas, and returning $12,288 of disposable income back in their pockets.
This year, Commuter Services of PA is celebrating Bike Month with a promotion asking commuters to record their bicycle trips in Commute PA. Participants will be entered randomly to win three $100 Tango gift cards.
To be eligible to win, commuters must do the following:
- Like one of our social media pages: Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter
- Comment on any of the three social media posts to be released by Commuter Services the week of National Bike to Work Day (May 18th, 19th and 20th).
- Record at least five bike commutes in your Commute PA account in May.
The winners will be announced at the beginning of June.
Funding is provided by the Federal Highway Administration through PennDOT and the region’s metropolitan planning organizations.
