Bicycle Benefits

Bicycle Benefits is a national program started by Ian Klepetar to encourage alternative transportation. Klepetar bikes to different cities around the US  to start up his program with local businesses. The local businesses sell Bicycle Benefits stickers to bicyclists to place on their bike helmets, which, when presented, earn the cyclist a discount at participating retailers. More than 30 local retailers in and around Ithaca are participating in the Bicycle Benefits program.


IthaCar taxi service provides an ecologically friendly transportation option. Customers ride in energy efficient hybrid vehicles to and from the airport.  In April, IthacCar partnered with the Finger Lakes Climate Fund to purchase carbon offsets for airport shuttle trips.
