Those of us living and riding in the Eugene/Springfield area have a wonderful problem on our hands. There are so many advocacy organizations in our area working to improve our lives that it’s almost impossible to keep track of them all. It can be difficult to see how these organizations fit and work together, and which is responsible for what. Well, lucky for you gentlefolks WeBikeEugene has come to the rescue! Last spring we circulated a questionnaire to as many of the local advocacy groups we could, and most of them answered back. From this we have created the Eugene Area Advocacy Primer.
The primer is a multi-part series which will run more-or-less weekly throughout the rest of summer, and cover organizations such as GEARs, The BikeLane Coalition, The UO Bike Program, Safe Routes to School, The BTA, and point2point Solutions! If you’d like an organization covered that is not listed here, let us know!
I’ve chosen point2point Solutions to kick off this series. point2point Solutions is the organization behind the “Drive Less, Save More” campaign last April and the Business Commute Challenge last May. They are also responsible for the incredibly useful KeepUsMoving.info website which updates commuters on construction that may affect them.
Take the jump to learn about point2point Solutions, how they work, what areas they cover, and what else they do. (They do a lot!)
