As you may remember, the Tampa Bay Beaches Chamber partnered with WalkWise to create a ROOM KEY SIZE card to hand to hotel guests with their room key upon check-in. This card provides visitors with crosswalk and pedestrian safety tips.
This card also fits perfectly into the billfold at restaurants or can be handed out at any establishment.
As we move into season, let me know if you would like "Key to Safety" cards to hand out to your customers. Contact Doug at (727) 360-6957 or firstname.lastname@example.org
We hope this effort helps visitors understand how and when to safely use the crosswalk system along Gulf Boulevard.
**Note: some properties have opted to print this directly on their room key holder.
