    Did you know automobiles are the single largest source of air pollution and greenhouse gases? But you can help to reduce their impact on our air.
    Activate your commute
    The Pima County Department of Environmental Quality Clean Air Program is hosting the Activate Your Commute Transportation Fair for people to learn about ways to create a more fulfilling commute that also helps protect community health and the planet.

    The event is free, open the public, and is scheduled for Tuesday, October 18 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Public Works Building basement Conference Room C at 201 N. Stone Ave.

    An open house format will provide opportunity for exhibitors to answer questions and share resources on great transportation options: transit, biking, vanpooling, bike-share, scooter-share, and air quality. Exhibitors include Pima County’s DEQ Clean Air Program and PCHD Bicycle and Pedestrian Program, City of Tucson Department of Transportation and Mobility, Sun Tran, Commute with Enterprise, Tugo Bike Share, Spin, and Razor.

    Two workshops will be offered during the event in an adjacent room. Seats are limited and registration is required. Pima County’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Program will share tips to keep smart and safe while bike commuting, whether a regular or occasional rider.

    The talk will be from 12:10-12:50 p.m. and topics include clothing, equipment, low-stress routes, securing your bike, and more. Shift Transit will talk from 11:30-11:45 a.m. about getting started with Tugo bike share and the app resources available to travel Tucson on two wheels.

    For more information or to register for the workshops, email HealthyAir@pima.gov or phone 520-724-7449.
