WAYS TO WIN.

Winning as a team: ​

To even out the competition, teams are divided into categories based on size. If you are the ONLY team in your category to achieve All-Star status (every single person at your workplace logs a sustainable commute) then you WIN. If multiple teams achieve  All-Star status,  the winner is decided by the leader boards. The winning team gets a pizza party!

Some teams go above and beyond sharing the benefits of sustainable commuting, encouraging each other to try sustainable modes, and getting their coworkers excited about the Commuter Challenge. Those teams aren't always their size category winners, but we want to acknowledge them and reward their hard work with an office ice cream party!

FREQUENTLY
ASKED QUESTIONS

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 counts as a carpool?

By using fewer cars to carry more people, carpool reduces traffic and lowers emissions. In order for your commute to count as a carpool, the other people in the vehicle must be eligible drivers (ie. 16 years or older with a valid driver's license.) and the car must remain at its final destination. When questioning carpool eligibility, ask yourself - Am I taking a car off the road that would otherwise be contributing to traffic and co2 emissions?

Do electric vehicles count as a sustainable mode?

Not in this challenge. The goal of the Commuter Challenge is to both reduce emissions AND mitigate traffic congestion. Driving an electric vehicle alone does not count toward the challenge, but carpooling in an electric vehicle does!

COMMUTER OF THE YEAR

Missoula In Motion recognizes TWO Missoulians (annually) who have built sustainable transportation habits into their daily lives - AND - who help promote sustainable transportation at their place of work or in the community.

We are accepting nominations for individuals who best exemplify the sustainable commuting habits we encourage. Sustainable modes include biking, walking, busing, carpooling, and vanpooling, as well as other unique types of transportation like longboarding or rollerblading. You can nominate an employee, family member, neighbor, co-worker, or friend!

The deadline to submit nominations is Friday, June 7th. Awards will be announced at Downtown Tonight in Caras Park on July 27.
