Try Going Car-Free
It’s always a great idea to have more than one way to get to Mason. Car-Free Day, on September 22, is an opportunity to try a new way to commute. Take the Car-Free pledge at https://carfreemetrodc.org/ and receive a Nift Gift and be entered into a raffle for some great prizes. If you’re a full-time employee, remember that public transportation costs are subsidized up to the IRS limit of $270/month. Details on the Commuter Choice Program are available at https://transportation.gmu.edu/commuter-choice/
