In a commitment to improve air quality Cache Valley Transit District (CVTD) and the Cache Chamber of Commerce are sponsoring “Cache in for Clean Air” during February. “We all know that we deal with air quality problems in the winter,” said CVTD General Manager Todd Beutler, “so we want to educate the people about the issue and encourage them to look at other forms of transportation. Public transit is a great option anytime of the year.” Beutler said to encourage people to ride the bus some will be rewarded with prizes. “Every time a person gets on a bus they may take a ticket from the bucket at the front of the bus. There are businesses participating with us where they can go to drop the ticket off. We will have a drawing at the end of the month. There will be six prizes awarded at the various businesses, all worth $100. “We know that one of the issues with our air quality is the number of vehicles on the road,” said Beutler. “Obviously we have some natural factors as well with our topography these winter days. If we can reduce the number of vehicles on the road that helps our air quality and that’s our goal. We’re giving people another choice to driving their car. “We have found there is some fear,” said Beutler, “and people aren’t show about schedules and how to ride the bus. But once they’ve tried it they find it’s not as hard as they thought.” More information about participating businesses is available at www.cvtdbus.org or by calling 752-2877.
