Ditch Your Keys in DFW

As Earth Day approached, our team really started to think.. Driving around DFW in our own cars appeared to be convenient and something that most of us were just used to doing.

From car and insurance payments to fuel and parking, owning a car can be pricey! So, with all of the above in mind, our team decided to ditch their keys for six whole weeks. Public transportation, bike riding, walking, and of course Uber were all allowed. And during the six week stent, we found that our colleagues fell into different rider categories.

From the social butterfly to the family man, take this quiz find out which rider profile you fall into.

We can all do our part to help celebrate DFW this Earth Day, if we start using public transportation options and sharing the road more often. Whether you’re fare splitting through the Uber app or taking the DART to your downtown meeting, there are plenty of ways we can be responsible citizens!
