Cindi Gyselinck, Program Administrator
Cindi Gyselinck has, for the last 12 years, spent every workday trying to communicate, market, encourage and persuade people to use an alternative commute mode to get to work. But Cindi also walks the talk. For the last 20+ years she has been carpooling with her husband, Will. Cindi admits it was easier when they worked at the same company, but that was more than 8 years ago. Now, she takes the bus or walks everyday to meet her husband to keep their carpool. Cindi can help you find the perfect solution for your commute.
