Our second Transportation Trivia Night fundraiser was tougher, rowdier and more successful than we could have imagined.
For those of you who haven’t been to one of our Transportation Trivia Nights, trust us when we say: when you get a bunch of transportation wonks in one room, things get wild. Questions on signal timing, bridge ratings, and transit modes in pop culture had teams howling. The Radio Room was so packed they opened one of their garage doors so that the standing-room-only crowd could spill out onto the patio.
We really can’t thank last night’s attendees enough for coming out to put their transportation knowledge to the test and support our work to create a healthier, more sustainable and more equitable community. Following an impassioned appeal by our amazing host, Peter Koonce, the teams sponsored 13 kids at Holiday Bike Drive. Incredible!
For all of our contestants who are patiently waiting for their team’s final scores – here they are:
Our winner – after three tie breakers – was Chicken Fried Bicycle with 26 points out of a possible 33.
