“They” in this case is Revmodo, a website and blog focused on sustainable energy and the technology behind it. Here’s what they said:
“For many nature lovers, the only downside of a hike or rock climbing trip is the fact that it normally requires a car. There’s the guilt of polluting the air, and for those who live in the city and don’t usually drive, there’s also the logistical challenge of finding a car. All those hikers are in luck, because a new website and mobile app is designed to help hikers find good trails they can reach by public transportation.”
We invite you to sit back and relax into summer with this video.
If you’re not outside already, don’t you want to go out and get moving?
And take the Transit & Trails Challenge! It’s easy: plan your trip, get outside and moving, log back in to tell your story and enter to win fabulous prizes! Prizes and winners and much more are on the nifty Transit & Trails blog (you’re looking at it).
With Transit & Trails Challenge you can explore your world in a whole new way. You can be free of parking hassles and parking tickets. You will have the freedom to sit, relax, talk and text, while getting there and back. And you spend more time doing what you want to be doing: hiking, walking, rolling, riding, running, and spending more time outside.
This is what they’re saying about Transit & Trails. “They” in this case is a world traveler who sent us this email:
Just arrived from UK for one full day in San Francisco and found this site (transitandtrails.org) – wanted a good length trail run around 20 miles+ and found the TAM to SF run.
What a brilliant idea being able to find all the bus links to get me to the trail head at the Pan Toll Ranger Station – they all worked perfectly. Started at 7am with the first bus, 2 hours later I was at the trail head. My run ended up being 30miles (6h 35m) as I added a few detours, so I was a very happy, if a little sore, bunny.
What stories do you have to share about taking transit to the trails?
Muir Woods. Crissy Field. Marin Headlands. Lands End. Fort Funston. Muir Beach. Stinson Beach. Point Reyes. Golden Gate Bridge. Cliff House. Ocean Beach. Fort Baker.
Have you been to one or all of these places? They are not only popular with the shorts-wearing-but-very-cold-in-July tourists, they are places that Bay Area residents love.
Now because of a partnership with GreenInfo Network and Transit and Trails, the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy gets us out and into those iconic places more easily. They recently re-launched their website featuring a new map of features and events in this huge recreation area. And with a little help from Transit and Trails, you can easily plan your trip using a car, public transit, a bike, your two feet, or a tour. See the handy “Plan A Trip Here” button when you click on a location? That’s powered by Transit and Trails juice.
We were excited to partner with GreenInfo Network and the Parks Conservancy. Both are leaders at what they do. But we hope that next time we work with them, we can have at least one meeting here:
