Celebrating the COTA Challenge
December 2, 2008 by Jeff Johnson
It started last January with the simple idea of using public transportation to get to and from work, but only when it was convenient. I spent $45 on a transit pass and $30 on gas and set out to determine if I could make the combination work. Well, it worked and at the end of January, I still had gas in the tank.
Using those guidelines as the general rules for living throughout 2008, I have found myself, now in December, with more available money than ever before. Because I’ve been so fortunate, it’s time to pay it forward to someone else. At the end of December I will buy a January COTA transit pass for someone willing to give it a try. Ideally, I’d like to see the recipient use it for commuting to and from work a couple times per week, but I’ll place no limits on its use. Use it for whatever purpose you’d like, just use it.
