Green Commute Challenge
Time: All Day
The Green Commute Challenge is designed to remove cars from the road during peak commute times and during ozone season in Kansas City. It’s an employer-based contest that encourages carpooling, riding the bus, bicycling, walking and telecommuting.
In 2011, the Green Commute Challenge’s 43 employer teams and 1,794 participants saved: 688,528 miles of driving, 636,841 pounds of emissions and $372,494 in driving costs. This year, the contest will be held from July 9 to September 28. Companies can create a Green Commute Challenge Team, and will compete against other organizations to drive less.
