Sign Up For ITD Bike/Ped E-Blast

For the average non-government, non-transportation person interested in bicycle and pedestrian issues, it's a challenge to keep up with legislative happenings, education/training opportunities, and other information. The Idaho Transportation Department is making it easier with a monthly 'E Blast' you can sign up for though.

So if you're interested, click here and you can sign up to receive a monthly email highlighting legislative updates, education/training opportunities, funding updates and other timely bits of information related to bicycle and pedestrian mobility.

E-Blast? I think they should have done some market testing on that name...

It wasn't ITD's idea. It's a term for an identical email message sent to numerous recipients, and it's becoming more widely used. I think it sounds goofy everytime I hear it too :)
