This looks like Boston - but it's rush hour in the Upper Valley!

Traffic is growing on Route 120 and employees are having a tougher time moving through it to get to work on time, especially during the morning and afternoon rush hours.
Employers and municipalities along Route 120, from Lebanon to Hanover, are joining together to find ways to reduce traffic in the corridor, especially during the busy morning and afternoon commuting hours. To begin accomplishing this, employers and municipalities are encouraging carpooling and transit use.
Please encourage the use of carpools by placing one or both of the posters shown here at entrances, offices and break rooms where employees, visitors, students and others will see them. If your are an employer, encourage carpooling by offering your best parking spaces to them, or a few minutes of flex-time to meet carpools.
To download the .pdf poster files, click on the download buttons on the left and save the poster to your computer. Print as many as you need.

Did you know that it costs 47 to 62 cents per mile to operate a personal vehicle? (Source: AAA)
The American Public Transportation Association (APTA) released a report that a person can achieve an average savings of $8,368 per year by taking public transportation instead of driving. Similar savings can be realized by carpooling with 3 or more commuters. On the average, the 140 million cars in America are estimated to travel almost 4 billion miles in a day, and according to the U. S. Department of Transportation, they use over 200 million gallons of gasoline doing it. (2006)
