Making sustainable transportation easier
WAY TO GO makes sustainable transportation an easy choice by having regional transportation alternatives all in one place.
Transportation is the biggest contributor to greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency. If everyone drove just 10% less, it would have a big impact on reducing emissions.
Sustainable transportation options are also affordable, equitable, build community health, and support economic opportunity.
Creating opportunities for community-building
The program will also help build community around sustainable transportation. This includes networking and social events, engagement opportunities on transportation projects, storytelling, and the Green Commute Challenge.
The annual Green Commute Challenge, October 1-31, 2023, invites community and employer-based teams to log their green trips to compete for weekly drawings and grand prizes.
