On March 1, Sustain Charlotte launched Way2Go CLT, an eight-month challenge to motivate and enable Charlotteans to drive 1 million fewer miles alone in their cars by Oct. 31.
To kickstart that motivation, Sustain Charlotte revealed some freaky statistics during a press conference...
On the plus side, Sustain Charlotte has found that 50.7 percent of Charlotteans would like to bicycle more, 76.6 percent would like to walk more and 56 percent actually live within a 10-minute walk to a public transit stop.
Do you fit those numbers? This is where the Way2Go CLT website and app come in. They can be found here. Way2Go CLT, a partnership with N.C.
