Biking

Fresh air, exercise and a less-harried trip are the promises of bicyling or walking. These are great options where facilities exist and if your travel distance is manageable.

511NY Rideshare provides tools and services to help you make your walk or bike to work safe, convenient and enjoyable. The Bike Buddy matching service, for example, can help you find a walking or biking partner. Just log in and in your ridematching preferences, check the option for Bike Buddy.  Then, run a ridematch!
