The Napa Valley Clean Air Coalition developed a website dedicated to car free tourism in Napa Valley. The Napa Valley Car Free website has now been integrated into Visit Napa Valley website and helps visitors find more environmentally friendly ways to enjoy the Valley. This new website encourages more sustainable tourism to the Napa Valley, helping reduce air pollution caused by traffic congestion.
In 2013 the Clean Air Coalition partnered with the Napa Valley Film Festival on a demonstration project- a car free shuttle for festival-goers- with the goal of reducing traffic congestion during this five-day event.
In 2014 the Coalition designed an open house for employers implementing the new Commuter Benefits Program. The Open House offers employers the opportunity to schedule a 15 minute one-on-one consultation with a commuter benefits expert. Attendees receive a Spare the Air flash drive with materials including: sample employee newsletter articles; posters to promote alternative commutes; and information on other available services and providers. There are also information tables for transit and vanpool services and a chance to network with other employers in the area. The first Open House occurred January 2015 with the expectation of another one or two later in the year.
Also in 2015 the Coalition is developing an incentive program to offer meeting organizers that will encourage their participants to choose alternative transportation travel modes to attend the meeting or event. If you are a meeting organizer and interested in learning about this program contact Stephanie Anderson at (510) 763-2500 ext. 1.
If you would like to join the team in its efforts to make the air clean and reduce traffic congestion in the Napa Valley, please call Stephanie Anderson at (510) 763-2500 ext. 1.
