Metro Council to offer new bike commuting incentive

Posted by Doug Shidell, March 29th, 2008

The Metro Council will offer an expanded Bike-2-Benefits program this year to cyclists interested in trying bike commuting. The program, still in the planning stages, will include custom route planning between your home and job, a copy of the 2005 Twin Cities Bike Map and incentives for cyclists who commit to ride at least 8 times during the 2008 season. In 2007, the 494 Corridor Services offered a similar program to employees who worked along the I-494 corridor. Doug Shidell, of Bikeverywhere, did the custom route planning. This year he will teach bike route planners throughout the Twin Cities how to plan a custom bike route for Bike-2-Benefits participants.
