Movability’s Communications Manager Kate recently visited New York City with her family, and they enjoyed getting around on foot – especially when they could choose a route through Central Park!

Beating the Summertime Car Blues

Have you gone on a fabulous vacation – or staycation – and used mobility options to get around instead of driving? Did you jump on the streetcar in San Francisco, experience the bullet train in Japan, or finally try a b-cycle here in Austin? If so, we want to hear from you! Send us your photos, stories, or insights about trying out different transportation modes this summer and we’ll feature you in our next newsletter. Or, share your story on social media and tag us with @Movability.

For those of you staying put here and trying to beat the heat, don’t forget that Capital Metro and the Austin Parks Foundation are working together to help families enjoy Austin’s back yard, save some money and maybe avoid the hassles of searching and then paying for parking. This summer, you can get $2 off admission to Barton Springs or Zilker Botanical Garden when you take Route 30 to Zilker Park. Combine it with Capital Metro’s Kids Ride Free program, and the whole family can have a great time!
