17th ANNUAL EVENT ASKS 'WHAT'S YOUR MPG'

Commuters who carpool, vanpool, ride transit, bike, walk or telecommute May 16 through 20 can double their miles per gallon – or better. With high gas prices hitting commuters hard in the pocketbook this spring, Commute Another Way Week is urging employers and commuters to work together to raise their MPG – and save a bundle on their daily commute.

“This is the 17th year we’ve held this event, and one thing that never stops drawing people in is the message about how much you can save when you drive alone to work less frequently,” says event organizer Carey Kish of the GO MAINE program.

The purpose of Commute Another Way Week is to let help Maine commuters learn more about carpooling, vanpooling, biking, walking or riding transit, teleworking and other low-cost alternatives to the single-occupant vehicle.

Seeking Much Needed Road Work in Birch Harbor & Prospect Harbor

Hi everyone,

 Today's topic is Route 186 from Birch Harbor to Prospect Harbor and the poor road conditions. One of the worst parts of the road is the section from the Prospect Point Road to the Winter Harbor town line. This road is horrible! The only way you can drive over it and not break a rod or bottom out your car is to have a speed of 15MPH or less! The road has giant pot holes and the entire road has bowed in the middle causing any vehicle that is low to the ground to scrape the underneath. On the sides of the road it is torn up so bad it is almost impossible to pull of the road in this area.
