Way 2 GO MAINE Commuter Challenge

The Way 2 GO MAINE Commuter Challenge is running for the whole month of October this year. It’s a friendly competition between workplaces across the state to see how many employees can walk, bike, carpool or vanpool, take the bus, or telecommute to work; get the most folks signed up with GO MAINE (with access to online carpool matching, the Emergency Ride Home benefit and ongoing rewards like discounts at local businesses); and show off the most organizational team spirit!

 

Here at GPCOG we’ve caught the bug. Check out how GPCOG staff used the Portland Peninsula to spell out “Way 2 Go” on a group bike commute.

How does it work? It’s fun and it’s easy. Log your daily travel to work or school for October 2018 – you can do just one day or everyday, whatever works best for you. Then post on social media, check out how your workplace is doing on the leaderboard and beat out your competition across Maine! There are prizes for those participating – plus employer races for Most Green Trips, Most New GO MAINERS, and the Most Team Spirit Award, based on social media presence.

Learn more and sign up here. Take the Challenge and make those commutes count!
