Commuter Challenge

The Commuter Challenge is back this May! Start logging trips May 1, 2023.


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.
