improving our air quality,” added Snow.

Nevada and offers free incentives to their employees to try new modes of sustainable transportation for
getting to and from work including walking, biking, transit, carpooling and vanpooling.

participating locations to receive great discounts, such as 10 percent off at Bike World, or $2 off any car
wash at Fabulous Freddy’s, or even 50 percent off tickets to the Las Vegas Wranglers, the local
professional hockey team.
