Clean Commute Week

CCW 2018The City is hosting the 9th annual Clean Commute Week which celebrates walking, rolling, biking, riding the bus and carpooling around Durango.

Clean Commute Week is an effort of the City of Durango to encourage citizens to get out of their single-occupant vehicle and try a more sustainable mode of transportation by commuting via public transportation, carpooling, walking, and bicycling.
