Green Commute Week is an exciting event designed to promote community awareness about transportation options in the Holland and Zeeland area. Throughout the week, participants choose “green” transportation options when commuting to work or school, running errands, or traveling anywhere else around the community (or beyond)! These alternative modes of transportation benefit the environment, the budget, and both personal and community health. 87,198 Green Commute miles have been recorded since the event’s beginning in 2011!
This event is for everybody!
Commuting Green is:
Riding the Bus
Driving a Fully Electric Car
Participants commit to commuting green two or more days during the week and then register as individuals or with a team to take part in the “Commute Challenge”, a friendly competition amongst Green Commuters. Participants log their Green Commute miles here on the MACC website Monday-Friday. Those with the highest participation within their category will be declared the winner! This year, the winning team in each category will receive a trophy and a bike rack to keep or donate to a location of their choosing. All participants will be invited to an awards banquet the following week. Click here to learn more about the Commute Challenge.
Visit the Recharging Stations! Green Commute participants will receive discounts on things like food, coffee, bike tune-up’s, and also get free rides on MAX Transit!
