Happy New Year from uGO! Let’s talk about transportation and New Year’s Resolutions. What's the most common New Year's Resolution? You guessed it - to exercise more and lose weight. Purchasing a new gym membership and establishing a workout routine are common next steps to accomplish this goal, but what if we told you that your commute can also play a role? Studies have shown that people who use transit take 30% more steps per day on average than people who drive, and nearly a third of transit users are physically active for 30 minutes or more each day just from walking to and from their pickup location. Similarly, studies show that the average person loses 13 lbs. in the first year of commuting by bike! Interested in changing up your commute for 2024? Check out our Transit and Biking pages on uGOinthecircle.com for information to help you get started!
