The Commuter Challenge is Missoula In Motion's annual head to head competition where businesses of similar size compete against each other to see who can get everyone to commute sustainably just one time. The Commuter Challenge is not anti-car and it is not pro-bike. The Commuter Challenge is all about exploring new commute options; you just have to do it once to win!

The catch: Each and every person at your workplace or in your department is by default on your team. Getting everyone to make one sustainable commute is the challenge!

The commuter Challenge


SEPTEMBER 12-25, 2021

The Commuter Challenge usually happens during the first two week of May, but because of the coronavirus pandemic, we have decided to move it back until the fall again this year. We are hoping that with the possibility of things getting back to normal, more and more people will start returning to work, getting back to their regular commutes, and feeling inspired to connect with other local Missoula workplaces through friendly competition.


Missoula In Motion takes the Missoula City-County Health Department recommendations very seriously and will be checking Covid guidelines frequently to ensure the safety of our events and programs. 

We hope you join us for the 2021 Commuter Challenge! 



Your workplace participates by using the online or app Way to Go! Missoula platform. Each coworker will create an account in Way to Go! Missoula and will connect to your team's workplace network. Your Commuter Challenge Captain will be able to see who has logged trips and will be able to run reports and internal raffles or challenges!



What is a commute?

The Commuter Challenge focuses specifically on your daily travel to and from your workplace. While we strongly encourage using sustainable travel modes throughout the day to run errands , grab lunch, etc. these additional trips will NOT be counted in this particular challenge. These trips should be logged as "errands" on Way to Go! Missoula.

What is a sustainable commute?

Any mode other than driving alone (walk, bike, bus, carpool, vanpool, telecommute, skateboard, rollerblade, etc.)

What are the requirements for businesses to participate?

The Commuter Challenge welcomes ALL businesses/non profits affecting the Missoula airshed. Whether you have a team of 5, 50 or 500 employees at your workplace, your participation will make a difference. The only requirement is that every team has a Commuter Challenge Team Captain that serves as the point of contact between your workplace and Missoula In Motion.
