GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colorado - Attorney Sandi Kister, a weekday commuter into downtown from Carbondale, is the latest winner in the city of Glenwood Springs Downtown Parking Perks promotion.
She received $250 in cash-equivalent tokens for parking in the Seventh Street lot and for registering both her car and her bike online in 2012.
"It was so cool to see how many people commuted by bike from Carbondale to get to and from their work in Glenwood this past summer," Kister said. "There were dozens every morning, and it was pretty chilly too at about 6:30 a.m."
Kister bicycled about half the time in the warmer months to get to work.
Downtown Parking Perks is a promotion available to all employees and visitors to downtown Glenwood Springs, ages 18 and up. Contest details are available at www.downtownparkingperks.com.
Parking Perks rewards cyclists and people who park in recommended alternative parking lots with tokens that spend like cash at 20 participating downtown businesses. The promotion will continue through fall 2013 when all downtown construction concludes.
