Bike to Work with DART in May and Win $100




On National Bike to Work Day, May 19, Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) encourages people to grab their bike and ride all or part of the way to work. Now more than ever, we don't need a car to get where we need to go. We’ve got greener options; by bus, by train, by bike or any combination.

On the way, stop by any of several “Energizer Stations” from 7 to 9 a.m. at the following locations: Downtown Plano Station, Mockingbird Station, CityLine/Bush Station, Farmers Branch Station, St. Paul Station, Addison Transit Center and Oakenwald Dallas Streetcar Stop. At each booth, get information from local bike groups, snacks, promotional items and tips on safety.

If leaving a bike at the station, DART allows riders to lock up a bike in one of more than 140 bike lids located at most rail stations and transit centers. Bikes also are welcome on all DART Rail trains, the Trinity Railway Express and the Dallas Streetcar. Likewise, most DART buses have an easy-to-use bike rack on the front of the vehicle.

In addition to Bike to Work Day, DART and the North Central Texas Council of Governments are hosting a Bike to Work Challenge to encourage bicycle commuting during the month of May. Participants will not only help the environment and improve their health, but also earn bragging rights and possibly win gift cards worth up to $100 from Richardson Bike Mart by riding as much as possible.

The Bike to Work Challenge requires logging daily commutes at TryParkingIt.com. The website enables commuters to both record the bicycle miles ridden and find alternatives to driving. To be eligible for prizes, participants must be residents of a DART service-area city: Addison, Carrollton, Cockrell Hill, Dallas, Farmers Branch, Garland, Glenn Heights, Highland Park, Irving, Richardson, Rowlett, Plano or University Park, or have a work destination with a zip code beginning with 75.
