Try Transit Week 2019 Wrap-Up

Every year for one-week, DRPT encourages commuters to take public transportation to work by pledging to try transit. Highgate Connect celebrated this year’s Try Transit Week with a breakfast event at Highgate on Thursday, September 19th. All residents who attended were eligible to enter a raffle to win either a $100 SmarTrip Card or a $50 Republik Coffee Bar gift card. Congrats to our two big winners!

Residents were also able to sign up to take the Pledge to Try Transit during the week of September 16-20 at the breakfast event and enter to win additional prizes, including a year of free public transportation fare, a pair of round-trip Northeast Regional Amtrak tickets, and local prizes.

We appreciate all who came out to help make Highgate Connect’s Try Transit Week breakfast a success. If you have any questions about how to improve your commute, please contact us at Thanks again for participating and be on the lookout for more fun events and information from Highgate Connect.
