There is an alternative method or two to get around the Upper Valley
Hello Upper Valley,
Today's "About Norwich" story is about alternate ways to travel around the Upper Valley. I have taken a posting from today's List Serve and have added some photo's and an original story about the Advance Transit Bus route also known as the Brown route. Please click on all links for details. Photo credits go to Linda Gray for today's photos and Demo Sofronas for the original Advance Transit story.
Enjoy and please check out some of my other stories by clicking on the AN "about norwich link in any story and then scroll down to to see all of them.
Bike, walk, take the bus, or carpool Friday morning and stop by a Curb the Car Day station in Hanover, Lebanon, Norwich, or White River Junction for snacks, socializing, and more.
Our town’s station is at Dan & Whit’s and the Energy Committee and other participants have an especially lively morning planned, and more in the mid afternoon. Stop by early in the morning, around 7:00 to 8:30, for cupcakes, coffee, etc.
The big event is a commuter “race” between those who choose to hike, bike, ride the bus or drive (in carpool or EV, maybe?) from the starting line at the Norwich station to the finish line in Hanover, near the bus stop at the Hop. The key rule is this: drivers and cyclists have to find a parking spot and the drivers and passengers have to find their way to the finish line.The starting gun, so to speak, is when the free bus to Hanover pulls out at 8:07. Everyone who’s not on the bus can then begin.
You don’t have to join the race — we’d all pat ourselves on the back for any and all efforts to curb the car and find other ways of getting around on Friday.
There will be a few freebies in Norwich, like refrigerator thermometers from Efficiency Vermont.From 2:00 to 3:30, check out the e-bike demos — both a do-it-yourself model and a cargo bike model suitable for parents hauling children.
And please, however you travel, on this and every day, stay safe and share the road.
