For the month of May, you’re challenged to shift gears from riding alone to riding with friends, using public transit, walking, or biking to and from work.
May is Commute Challenge Month and Innovate Memphis’ Commute Options initiative is designed to help drivers leave their cars behind and use healthier, less stressful, and less expensive means of transportation.
The benefits are plentiful.
We all know not to text and drive, but you can text and ride. Passengers in a carpool or transit can get a jump start on their workday, check in with social media, or go old-school and read a book as they travel.
Walking & Bicycling
Walkers and cyclists reap the health benefits of daily exercise and all options bring relief from the hassle of finding a parking space, save money, and contribute to healthier bodies and a healthier environment.
Challenge participants are eligible to win prizes all throughout the month of May!
During the 4-week event, we’ll draw winners weekly from those who registered a bicycle ride, rode a bike, carpooled, vanpooled, took a transit, or walked to work. Prices will include gift cards to wellness studios and restaurants, and MATA passes.
Companies and Businesses
Companies and businesses are encouraged to participate as a team. The three top worksites will receive a pizza lunch.
To help commuters make the transition from driving solo, Commute Options will host Bike Train Tuesdays, a fun morning ride to points in midtown and downtown each week.
