Daily Tip : October 5, 2007

If you live within a mile or so from your school, try taking your kids via a "walking bus." Walk to school as a group! Organize your neighbors and develop a "bus route." The furthest stop away from school starts, then "picks up" the next nearest, etc. Reverse the plan for the trip home. Parents deal with the timing and safety issues, and everyone gets some exercise, meets their neighbors, and creates very little pollution. Truly public transportation!
