LEAVE YOUR CAR BEHIND AT LEAST ONCE THAT WEEK TO GET AROUND TOWN! May 14-18, 2018
Bike Walk & Wheel Week 2018, Presented by Hy-Vee
Which active transportation mode(s) will you choose that week? Which route will you take to work, school, lunch, the store, to visit friends? Whether it's your first time or you're a pro at using Springfield's active transportation options, plan to join us that week by leaving your behind at least one day to get around town --- by biking, taking the bus, carpooling, walking, telecommuting, or any combination. Teams and individuals may all participate! Schools are welcome to participate earlier if it fits their schedule. Share our flier and cartoon.

GET READY --- Choose mode, Plan route, Prep gear
Use our bike route & greenway maps and city bus maps, and tips on our Let's Go Smart and Safety Education pages. Find out how easy it can be for many residents to leave their car behind once in a while, or on a regular basis. Here's a video with tips to inspire you! Springfield has a network of 81 miles of on-street bike routes, and over 70 miles of greenways, and this event allows us show them off!
FREE CITY BUS --- Ride free that week when traveling with a bike
City Utilities will give free city bus rides all that week to those traveling with a bike! Each bus has an easy-to-use bike rack on the front, that bus driver will happily help with if needed. The bus station downtown on Main & College streets has a bike aide station with air pump and tools.
