DASH ‘Try Transit Week’ Contest Winner: Congratulations to Aileen Marshall!
Aileen’s winning entry to the question, “Why Should People Try Transit” was:
The obvious answer: It saves money, energy, the environment, and prevents backups on highways.
For me though transit is part of my lifestyle. Born and raised in Germany I did not even have a car! Public transportation was everywhere.
It’s stress-free. Finally you have time to read that book that has been on your table for weeks, or read the paper every morning in peace, or even take a cat nap.
Last but not least: It’s fun! Look out of the window and day-dream while listening to your favorite music … when have you done that last? Or chat with other passengers … that tends to happen a lot, especially when there is something unexpected going on.
Aileen won two tickets to the Potomac Riverboat Company.
DASH received many great entries! Thank you to everyone for your participation in the contest and Try Transit Week!
