The following is an industry press release ...
The 26th annual Motorcycle and Scooter Ride to Work Day is Monday, June 19th. Every year more than a million two wheeled moto-commuters demonstrate the benefits of riding, including: reduced road congestion, shorter commute times, more parking spaces and less fuel consumption.
Your city can support this event by proclamation, and also encourage riding by providing free motorcycle and scooter parking at municipal ramps and metered spaces on this day. Join hundreds of other communities as well as many motorcycle and scooter groups and organizations supporting this year’s Ride to Work Day.
Reasons to encourage motorcycle and scooter commuting:
- Shared parking spaces, providing more parking for everyone else.
- Fewer resources consumed per-commuter than other powered mobility options.
- Reduced traffic and congestion.
- Less commuter travel time.
We seek government, employer and community support and recognition of the positive social benefits of riding. Proclamations and providing motorcycle and scooter parking at no charge, are great ways to encourage this beneficial (and enjoyable) form of transportation.
