Join the Commute Solutions Commuter Challenge

April is the beginning of ozone season and you can do your share to spare the air. This is a great time to try an alternate commute such as riding the bus, taking the train, carpooling, vanpooling, walking, biking, or teleworking. You can save money, help keep our air cleaner, and have a chance to win great prizes while participating in the Commuter Challenge.

The Commuter Challenge runs from April 1 through April 18. All you need to do is log your biking, walking, transit, teleworking, vanpooling and/or carpooling trips to be entered for a chance to win. When you log your trips, you can track cost savings, fuel saved, calories burned, and pollution reduced.

By taking the Challenge, you will be eligible for one of the six great prizes (one prize for each mode). Prizes include a bicycling backpack, iPod Nano, and a Kindle Fire.

To join the Challenge, go to , register, and keep a daily log of your alternate commutes. Existing myCommuteSolutions users will just need to sign in and log your commute. It's free and it's easy. Please visit, and click on "Incentives – Commuter Rewards" for more information on details and prizes.
