This morning more than two dozen US DOT employees rode to work with their boss, Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood. The bike ride, which started at the Washington Monument and ended at the US DOT headquarters, came about after a Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) employee, Darren Buck, submitted the suggestion to the Department.
“This morning I biked to work with a group of DOT commuters from the Washington Monument to our headquarters building. The route was safe and well-marked; we enjoyed some exercise; and we didn’t burn a drop of gas–which saved us some money,” the Secretary wrote on his blog, “That’s what I call a successful commute.”
