Do the Ride Thing Launches in East Village



The East Village Association (EVA) hopes to alleviate some of the stresses of parking downtown with the launch of a new mobility campaign called Do the Ride Thing.

Do the Ride Thing is focused on creating solutions for mobility and parking in East Village by encouraging locals and visitors to try a different method of transit when traveling to the downtown neighborhood.

To help craft solutions and options for mobility, transit and parking, EVA is encouraging residents and businesses to participate in a short survey at http://dotheridethingsd.com/mobility. The information gathered from the survey will help EVA to understand how people travel to East Village and why. The survey results will also help formulate the best options of travel between East Village and surrounding neighborhoods. Survey participants will be entered to win a gift card from Massage Envy East Village.

Doing the Ride Thing provides benefits to both the neighborhood and the participants. It helps to free up parking for visitors who do not have other options of travel, contributes to the city’s Climate Action Plan, encourages people to take an active role in their transportation methods, improves their health and increases community involvement. Stay tuned for the next Do the Ride Thing event on September 16, 2016 in front of Moniker Warehouse (705 16th St.) celebrating National Parking Day.
