The Curb Your Car Week program encourages the use of cheaper, healthier, and more earth-friendly transportation alternatives.
During one week in spring and one week in fall, ColorBrightonGreen.org asks residents from Brighton and around, who normally use an automobile for daily transportation, to consider walking, biking, car pooling, or riding the bus as alternatives.

- Some routes are easier and safer: View/print this Genesee Transportation Council bike map in a new window.
- This year, during Curb Your Car Week, you might want to try out Brighton’s first Bicycle Boulevard that opened in 2016. A bicycle boulevard is a low-speed street, where motorists expect to see bicyclists and is intended to improve bicyclist comfort and/or safety. To learn more about the route, visit the Town of Brighton website.

- Share a car with a neighbor, colleague, or friend.
Ride the bus
Several Regional Transit Service Bus routes cross through Brighton and all other parts of Monroe County:
- Make one day (or more) a work-from-home day if your job involves phoning and computers, or projects you can pack up. One day at home each week could save you about $175 a year.
