KPCC Wants Your Car-Free Stories

11:19 AM PDT on June 26, 2009

Public Radio station KPCC, 89.3 on your radio dial, is looking for stories about car-free living and the fiscal impact of owning and riding a bike instead of driving a car. I've heard some people worry that Streetsblog and similar websites end up becoming an echo-chamber for like minded people; well here's a chance to tell your story to a larger group of people.

This car-free outreach is part of what KPCC is calling the Insight Network, where the newsroom looks to the public to inform its coverage of issues. If you want to take a second to fill out their form to tell them why you choose to ride instead of driver, you can fill out their survey here. All information is for their private use unless you state otherwise. To read the announcement of this new initiative by Sharon McNary in the KPCC newsroom, read on after the jump.

Hello from Sharon McNary in the KPCC newsroom.

With gas prices going up again, I'm looking for personal stories about people who are car-less or who are using their cars a lot less. If you'd like to share your insights on how your bicycle is changing your financial life, click this link:

People who respond to the bicycle questions become part of a group of public radio news sources called the Insight Network. Sources get about one e-mail a month asking about their experiences on other issues in the news. It's a direct line into our newsroom and a good way to help shape the news you hear on Southern California Public Radio.

It's confidential - responses are used only for journalistic purposes - and nothing you share will be aired or published without your permission.

Thanks very much for your help,

Sharon McNary
