Compete in Green Commute Challenge

Join Kansas City’s effort to improve air quality this summer by competing in the Green Commute Challenge to reduce emissions. Ride a bus, streetcar, bike, carpool, or walk/telecommute to work.

This friendly competition helps improve air quality during the time of year that traditionally produces the highest ozone levels. Air quality is most vulnerable during the summer months when heat, sunlight and emissions combine in the atmosphere to create ozone. The Green Commute Challenge encourages work places to form an employee team and find alternatives to driving for their daily work commutes. Individuals can also register.

The 11th annual Green Commute Challenge will be held from June 1 to August 31.  Participating commuters will be able to access an online tool to track activities that reduce driving miles and show the reduced emissions and money saved.

“We hear from participants each year that the Green Commute Challenge is a great motivator for exploring commute options,” said Amanda Graor, air quality program manager for the Mid-America Regional Council (MARC). “Changing your commuting habits may seem difficult, but we offer lots of tools and resources that we hope make it easier to consider alternative transportation.”

To get started, register a company team or individual at RideshareKC.
