Green Commute

About Green Commute Week

Our annual 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. 103,896 Green Commute miles have been tracked since recording started in 2011.

Commuting Green is:

Walking
Biking
Carpooling
Riding the Bus
Driving a Fully Electric Car

Commute Challenge

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 among Green Commuters. Participants log their Green Commute miles Monday-Friday. Those with the highest participation within their category will be declared the winner!
