Make a New Year’s Resolution that really counts!

Inversion season is upon us, and now is the time to act. This year, make a New Year’s Resolution that really counts — make a Resolution to Clear the Air.

Utahns from all walks of life are making small changes in their travel habits this winter to reduce their impact. Resolutions are large or small, and include taking TRAX to work three times a week, carpooling to weekend events, and being idle free.

Every small step helps move us forward. So make your resolution and share it with us!

A Video New Year’s Resolution

Our first video New Year’s Resolution to Clear the Air comes from Monica Fischli, who resolves to walk to work at least three times a week during the winter months.

While we all are not able to walk to our destination, let her resolution inspire you to make your own small changes to drive less and help clear the air.
