EDGEWATER — The "Go Edgewater" campaign will include workshops and guided bicycle rides beginning in June to encourage residents to ditch the car and walk, bike and take transit more often.
Active Trans, which manages the Go program for CDOT, plans to hire "outreach ambassadors" who will promote the program this spring and through the summer.
Go Edgewater will work with the CTA, Metra and Divvy, among others, to help people alternative transportation.
Maggie Melin, Go project coordinator for Active Trans, said she had met with Edgewater residents who came up with a few preliminary ideas for the project, including a parade featuring with decorated bikes and bicyclists instead of floats.
A Facebook page was also launched for the program.
