The October 2011 “Portland Business Commuter Challenge” is a friendly, grassroots competition among businesses where everyone wins. At stake are a handful of fun incentives, a chance to use and promote more sustainable transportation choices and an opportunity to make your business greener.
To play, businesses promote the challenge and encourage their employees to try biking, walking, carpooling or taking the bus to work in October. To be able to win, the walkers, bikers and riders then log into GO MAINE and record their participation. In the first week of November we’ll tally the results and name the winning commuters and businesses.
Take the challenge and see how many trips to or from work your employees can take commuting another way (bike, walk, carpool, bus). For more information visit http://gomaine.org/09/the-portland-business-commute-challenge/ or contact Erik West at erik@GOMAINE.org.
