The September 2013 ZAP Twin Cities newsletter includes prize winners, a survey for our one year anniversary, stats for August and more! Make your bike commuting count, get rewarded with ZAP Twin Cities!



Happy Birthday ZAP Twin Cities!

Is it really September already? ZAP Twin Cities is officially one year old, let’s avoid the terrible two’s by filling out a short survey to tell us where we need to make improvements and what’s working for you.

We want you to be honest, brutally, brutally honest. Let us know what needs improvement, what is annoying, and what needs to get changed so we can improve the program and ultimately get more people biking.  Then we want you to provide some warm fuzzies by sharing what you like about the program, we’ll need warm fuzzies after that brutal honesty.

It’s short, it’s sweet, it’s a ZAP twin Cities survey. Please take a few minutes of your time to provide feedback.


Reminder: New Twitter Account

Last month we launched our new twitter account and we are now up to…. 47 followers. That’s sad. We know we have more friends than that, or we would like to think we do.  Please follow ZAP Twin Cities at @ZAP_TC .
