Are you ready to green commute?
Challenge yourself and your coworkers to bike, walk, carpool, ride the bus or streetcar or vanpool to work this fall.
The 2022 Green Commute Challenge is a free competition among Kansas City area commuters to reward taking sustainable transportation options to work. For six weeks, from Sept. 19 through Oct. 28, members of employer-based teams can log their green commute trips to earn points and get entered in weekly drawings for prizes from local businesses and makers. At the end of the Challenge, prizes will be awarded for categories like most green commute trips completed, best social media, and more.
By participating, not only will you help yourself by saving money, but you will also support your community, play a role in improving local air quality, decrease your greenhouse gas emissions and become part of a larger network of people interested in sustainable transportation in the region. (Plus, did we mention the prizes?)

New in 2022! Create a Community Team
Are you a small business owner interested in joining forces with other small businesses nearby? Employers with 20 or fewer employees can now create a Community Team to compete as a team with other businesses in the same community. This could be anything from neighbors in the same business district to employers in the same industry or cultural community. We’re stronger when we work together. If interested in creating a coalition, contact RideshareKC Program Outreach Coordinator Rachel Krause at firstname.lastname@example.org.
