Q: What is the Commuter Challenge?

 UM departments will compete to see who can get everyone on their team 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 trying new commute options; you just have to do it once to win!

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

Q: What are the requirements to participate?

The Commuter Challenge welcomes ALL campus departments or independent organizations located on the UM campus. Part-time student employees are welcome to join teams as well. The only requirement is that every team has a Commuter Challenge Team Captain that serves as the point of contact between your department and Missoula In Motion. 

Q: How does my workplace participate? 

Your team participates by logging sustainable commutes with Way to Go! Missoula. Each member will create an account in Way to Go! Missoula and connect to your team's Network. Your Commuter Challenge Captain will be able to see who logs trips and can run reports and internal raffles or challenges!

Unfortunately, the UM Commuter Challenge is complete BUT you do have the opportunity to create internal workplace challenges. Create a challenge with us at any point during the year and compete against your fellow employees. what a fun and rewarding way to engage in sustainable transportation! 

Way to Go! Missoula offers the tools you need to encourage sustainable commuting options at your workplace. Once you create a Workplace Network, you can easily set up challenges, incentives and raffles to motivate behavior change. You can also conveniently track program impacts.
