How Do You Commute?

H/t to Mattapoisett in LA.

Television station KCET is looking for people to shoot videoes or photoes of their commutes for an online series they’re doing for their "SoCal Connected" series.  Initially they gave cameras to five commuters, including a cyclist, a pedestrian and a transit user; but if they’re looking for people to tell them about their commutes, let’s make sure they know that the alternative transportation community is alive and well in Southern California. 

Here are the directions on getting involved from the KCET website.  Ignore that part about next week, I was late putting this up so we have two days to get our stories submitted.

We’d like to add your photos and video of your commutes to our map next week. Here are two ways to contribute:

Shoot and upload a video to YouTube. Once your video is up, tag it with "KCETCOMMUTE" and send us a message at our Youtube account KCETOnline.

Shoot and upload a photograph to the SoCal Connected Flickr Group. No need for special tagging or messaging, just join our group and it to the pool!
