Garrett Park Conservation Action Network




in Action










The Better World Club offers an alternative to Triple-A for roadside assistance. Here's what our own Jenn Sass has to say about it: "They are like the traditional
AAA roadside assistance, except where AAA puts your money to work
AGAINST bike trails and public transport, and FOR expansion of roads
and highways, BetterWorldClub is the opposite. BetterWorldClub lobbys
for rails-to-trails programs, for public transportation, for bike
paths, and for reduced fleet emissions for new cars. And, my family
has had them for about a decade, and their roadside service is as good
as anyone. I'm a very happy long-time customer, and encourage you to
give them a try."
