For Sustainable Transportation Month, we've compiled a list of tunes to get Bruins movin', be it walking, biking, or riding public transportation. Why sit in traffic shuffling between radio stations, stressed out behind the wheel, when you could fight pollution, cut congestion, save cash, and improve your health and well-being cruising along to these songs? Here's a suggested soundtrack for any alternative transportation trip.
Walk This Way — Aerosmith
Walking on Sunshine — Katrina & The Waves

Whether it is 10,000 steps a day, or 500 miles (over time), walking is very good for your health.

The Walker — Fitz & The Tantrums
The up-tempo song includes a shoutout to the City of Angels!
