The 2014 Green Commute Challenge encourages commuters to get out of their cars and carpool, take the bus, walk, bike or telecommute to work from June 2 to August 29. The challenge is a program of RideShare and AirQ.
To get started, create a Green Commute Challenge Team for your company and register at www.ridesharekc.org by July 9.
Participating commuters can access an online tool to track their progress and earn points for daily and monthly prizes. Last year, 27 teams and 835 commuters reduced their driving by 999,151 miles, prevented 963,924 pounds of ozone-forming emissions and saved $185,247 in fuel costs.
