This is CT Rides Week. Commuters are being asked to try a green ride this week, whether it's car pooling, walking, biking or taking a bus or train. C-T Rides project manager Russel McDermott says there are rewards and prizes for people who pledge to take a greener trip.
Over 40 organizations are taking part in CT Rides week. Among them are Danbury-based Cartus and Belimo Air Controls, New Milford-based Marrakech Inc., and HARTransit.
There are more than 100 partners including the City of Danbury and the towns of Brookfield, Monroe, New Milford and Redding. Danbury Public Schools, Newtown High School and West Conn are also partners in CT Rides week.
This is also Bike to Work Week. There are events in Danbury and Bethel. On Wednesday, there is a kickoff at the Pulse Point on Kennedy Avenue in Danbury from 7am to 9am and again from 3pm to 5pm. There is a breakfast on Friday at the Bethel Train Station from 7am to 9am.
