Bike to Work Day
Submitted By City of Union City
In support of "Bike to Work Day", the City sponsored an Energizer Station at the Union City BART Station on Thursday, May 9, 2013 from 7 a.m. - 9 a.m. Many thanks to Wayne Cruz and Rick Bozu from the Public Works Department; Jo Ann Lew, Planning Commissioner; and Glenn Kirby, former Neighborhood Preservation Manager, for their assistance setting up and manning the station.
The team counted a total of 90 bicyclists including six Union City employees. The City received a $200.00 grant from the Spare the Air Southern Alameda County Resource Team that went towards water, fruit, and snacks for the bicyclists. Staff purchased $10.00 gift cards with the rest of the money that were randomly provided to bicyclists visiting the station. This was in addition to the reusable goody bags that were provided by the event sponsors.
