Town of Babylon Deputy Supervisor Tony Martinez recently joined with Town Clerk Carol Quirk to recognize a group of town employees who successfully completed the 511NY Rideshare Commuter Challenge, which encourages participants to use alternative methods of transportation when commuting to work. Representatives of 511NY Rideshare, which provides free transportation and ride matching services, hosted a complimentary lunch at Town Hall in Lindenhurst to thank those who successfully completed the challenge. Deputy Supervisor Martinez and Town Clerk Carol Quirk showed their appreciation for the participants for their role in helping the town continue to “go green” and be more environmentally conscious.
In order to complete the Commuter Challenge, those taking part were required to use a new mode of travel to and from work, whether it be carpooling, walking, biking or public transit, four times in one calendar month. Residents who are interested in carpooling or alternative commuting options can sign up by clicking on the “Rideshare” link on the Town of Babylon homepage to find others with similar commutes.
