Commuter Challenge

2021 Commuter Challenge

The annual Commuter Challenge will be back in September 2021.  We hope that by this point, more people will be returning to some version of a routine, schools will be reopening to in-person instruction, our local transit system will be operating at 100%, and that we can take advantage of this return to human contact to set some new commuting routines. 

 

The Commuter Challenge is an online commuting competition that takes place annually. The goal of the challenge is to encourage people that may not otherwise use alternative modes of transportation to use it at least once during this competition. By doing so, they may be more inclined to continue after the competition is complete.

2019 was the 14th Annual Commuter Challenge in which 2,200 commuters competed during the month of May. These commuters, from 275 different organizations, logged almost 40,000 alternative commutes by walking, biking,taking the bus, carpooling, vanpooling, and telecommuting all while having fun and engaging with their co-workers and community.

Commuters logged over 408,000 alternative commutes and burned an amazing 2,200,000 calories during the month. This saved 638,500 pounds of C02 from entering our atmosphere.

The 2020 Challenge was cancelled due to the ongoing effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.  The Challenge is returning in 2021, with more information coming soon.
