Tired of that Long Commute? Share the Ride

TAMPA -

Gasoline prices have recently shied away from the precipitous three-dollar-a-gallon mark. But buying gas can still leave a hole in your wallet - as well as the conscious of some people who are concerned about the impact of their cars on the environment and traffic congestion.

Bay Area Commuter Services wants to ride to the rescue of those kind of people. Sandy Moody is the group's executive director.

MOODY: We've come a long way, and I think that people are actually starting to really hear the message now - especially since there's such a roller coaster ride of fuel costs, and things like that... People are starting to listen to the message a little bit more now that it's upon each of us to take ownership of what happens for our future, our children's future, and our grandchildren's future.

A series of educational events starts today at Poe Plaza in downtown Tampa. The next event will be Tuesday at The Towers in the Westshore Business District;' Wednesday at Clearwater City Hall;' and Thursday at First Central Tower in downtown St. Petersburg. All events start at 11:30 a.m.
