BHJ and Froggy 104.3 team up to promote regional rideshare program
Frogman from the Frogman and Gator Show, Mr. Frog and the Brooke Hancock Jefferson Planning Commission staff will be live from 4-6 p.m. May 24 at Sheetz in Weirton to promote commuting options in the Northern Panhandle.
The Share the Ride event will be broadcast live on Froggy 104.3 FM. The remote on-site will be at Sheetz, just off the Three Springs Drive Exit on US 22.
Drivers and commuters can stop by the live remote for a chance to win prizes at games, get some info about rideshare options, and enter to win a pair of tickets to an upcoming concert.
“Commuting through the rideshare program is good for your wallet and the planet,” said Adrienne Ward, BHJ office manager and the office’s CommuteInfo contact. “Participants are always surprised at how much they save on gas and car repair.”
CommuteInfo is a program of the Pittsburgh’s Southwestern Pennsylvania Commission, in partnership with BHJ, Weirton Transit Authority and Steel Valley Regional Transit. The program is designed to increase the number of people who travel to work or school by riding transit, carpooling, vanpooling, or bikepooling.
The goal is for commuters living, working or attending school in the SPC and BHJ region to choose ridesharing at least twice a week. For more information, visit www.commuteinfo.org or call 1-888-819-6110.
