ecoShuttle your way out to Pickathon
One of the many ways to help limit the overall impact of Pickathon is for folks to consider their options once it comes to getting out to Pendarvis Farm. Automobiles, although a relative necessity, are a big part of the pollution problem. We understand this and want to do all that is possible to help make things easier when considering an alternative.
Essentially what we are going after is the future of a car-free Pickathon, and with great confidence we'd like to challenge folks in helping make this goal a reality. With the help of like-minded cohorts ecoShuttle, we have once again organized the quick and easy Pickathon bio-fueled shuttle. New in 2010 we are pleased to report that the Tri-Met Max Green Line now goes all the way out to the Clackamas Town Center, which is an easy 5 miles from Pendarvis Farm. This is huge! You can now take public mass transit from Portland to Clackamas, then hop on the Pickathon ecoShuttle to take you out to the farm and back. Shuttles will operate all weekend starting Thursday August 5 thru Monday August 9. Come and go as you please with a weekend ride card costing only $5 if purchased in advance. If wanting to take this further, and for folks from far away places we suggest looking into the Amtrak when coming to Portland, then taking the Max to Clackamas, then finishing things up with the happy and healthy Pickathon ecoShuttle. Tickets for this years Pickathon ecoShuttle can be found at the ecoShuttle website. Schedules for both the Max and the ecoShuttle can be found at the Pickathon Info page.
It's up to us to make this work, and we appreciate the support and encouragement you great folks have shown this idea over the past few years. We'll get there, and thanks to 2010 Pickathon ecoShuttle, so will you. Only 37 more days to go...
