Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, we have made the difficult decision to postpone this year’s Green Commute Week. Green Commute Week will now take place October 5-9, 2020.
We have been curious about what running the program in the fall instead of the spring would be like, and believe this is the perfect opportunity to give it a try. It is our hope that by then we will be able to run the program as normal while enjoying the beautiful fall weather and protecting the health and safety of our participants.
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:
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 among Green Commuters. Participants log their Green Commute miles Monday-Friday. Those with the highest participation within their category will be declared the winner!
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!
Green Commute Days and Other Challenges
In addition to Green Commute Week, participants will also have the opportunity to participate in Green Commute Days and other month long challenges throughout the year. For more information, visit the Other Events page and be sure to keep up on social media!
