Green Commute Week 2020

Green Commute Week 2020 will take place October 5-9. The event will look a little different this year, with the commute challenge focusing on active and socially distant forms of green transportation. This includes walking, biking, telecommuting, driving a fully electric vehicle, or any other form of green transportation that involves physical activity (rollerblading, skateboarding, kayaking, etc.). All types of trips are encouraged, whether they are to and from a destination like work or school, or simply recreational.

Unlike previous years, no registration is required and all participants will participate as individuals. However, this doesn’t mean that you can’t form your own teams within a workplace or other group and hold your own internal team challenges. It’s encouraged!

Additionally, there will be no recharging stations or award ceremony this year.

How It Works:

There will be five commute categories:

Walking
Biking
Telecommuting
Electric Vehicles
Other – Any other form of green transportation

Trip and Mileage Logging

Log each commute trip throughout the week, including miles and mode here on the MACC website. Each trip should be entered individually. The link to log your trips will be posted below once the challenge begins.

Participation and Prizes

This year’s commute challenge is based on participation. At the end of the week, there will be a random drawing for $50 West Coast Cash within each commute mode category.

Each trip logged = one entry in the corresponding mode category. The more trips recorded and the more modes you choose, the higher your chances are of winning.

Example: If you log three trips by bike and four trips by skateboard, you will be entered three times into the bike category and four times into the “other” category.

The trip tracking form will close at noon on Saturday, October 10th, to allow Friday’s commutes to be logged. The winner in each category will be announced on Monday, October 12th.
