Take the DART Bike to Work Challenge in May




May is National Bike month and Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) is hosting a Bike to Work Challenge to help encourage riders to use bicycles as an alternative to driving during the month of May. Cyclists can help the environment, improve their health and earn bragging rights by riding as much as possible to win gift cards from Richardson Bike Mart worth up to $100.

Eligible participants must be residents of DART cities Addison, Carrollton, Cockrell Hill, Dallas, Farmers Branch, Garland, Glenn Heights, Highland Park, Irving, Richardson, Rowlett, Plano and University Park, or have a work destination that begins with the 75 zip code.

DART and the North Central Texas Council of Governments have partnered on this first ever Bike to Work Challenge where participants must log their daily commute activities at tryparkingit.com. The website is free and was developed to record the miles ridden and to assist commuters in finding and utilizing alternatives to driving alone. Bicycles are permitted on any DART vehicle, all Trinity Railway Express trains and the Dallas Streetcar.
