Commute Options, a new website designed to decrease the use of single-occupancy vehicles in Memphis, launched last week to encourage Memphians to use other commute options, such as walking, biking, ride-sharing or public transit whenever possible.
The Bluff City’s bike-friendly culture features bike lanes on city streets, protected green lanes, bike racks, bike shops, and co-ops, bike-related organizations, group rides and cycling events. In fact, in 2012, Biking Magazine named Memphis its “most improved bike city“. With its updated biking infrastructure, Memphis is a great city for commuting to and from work by bike.
Commuting by bus is made easier with apps such as TransLoc Rider, which lets you quickly locate specific routes and stops and see the location of any bus in your vicinity. It provides real-time updates with your bus’s location and alerts to tell you when your bus is approaching.
