In November, we ran our annual Thankful Commuter Contest to see why our registrants are thankful for going green and saving green. Our winner this year was Scott Christensen, who commutes to his job at the Aberdeen Proving Grounds with 5 other coworkers via vanpool. On average, each person’s commute would be approximately 37 miles each way from their homes in Delaware to the Proving Grounds in Maryland. This one vanpool takes 5 cars and 444 vehicular miles off the road every day! When asked why they choose to vanpool, Scott and his coworkers cited saving money on gas, being able to live in Delaware and enjoy its lower cost of living, and taking cars off the road. We applaud Scott and his coworkers for their commitment to clean commuting and look forward to having them continue their commitment in 2017. We would also like to individually recognize Scott for his continued dedication to clean commuting. He was one of the first registrants in our program and for several years has made it a priority to vanpool to work, even if it meant he had to switch vanpools and carpool to the pickup location during that time. Great job all around!
