A Mindful Approach to Personal Transportation Choices
The Greater Newburyport area has walkable, bikeable town centers and a rich menu of transportation options. We are served by taxis, a rental car agency, intra- and inter-state bus service and commuter rail. In this open discussion we will talk about our transportation options and explore how we might make our travel choices more mindfully — for cleaner air, better health and often less costly trips.
In addition to sharing all the transportation options we are aware of in our area, we will look at an awareness-raising technique used by Bart Anderson, a urban permaculturist, to examine his daily transportation patterns using a zoned approach.
The event, sponsored by Transition Newburyport and Community Resilience Circles, is at 4 PM on Sunday, October 20th, Central Congregational Church, 14 Titcomb Street in Newburyport.
