Santa Monica’s 2015 Commuter Challenge Kicks Off Public Transit Month in July

CMS_genFIX2.jpgSanta Monica employees and residents can register now for the city’s first-ever Commuter Challenge, a competition to bike, carpool/vanpool, ride transit, or walk to work, instead of driving alone. With only two months left in the challenge, now is the time to get involved! You can log your trips up to 5 weeks retroactively, so it is never too late to join during the month.

  • Register as user with any network-- your employer, SM Residents Employed Outside of City, or just the CommuteSM network. 
  • Start logging your Public Transit trips in July, and your Walking trips in August, to be automatically entered
  • Don’t know the best route to take? Favorite your trip in our Trip Planning module to see!
  • Each week in July, one random participant will get a pre-loaded TAP card with $17.50. 
  • For July, the user with the greatest CO2 savings receives 2 passes to 2015 FYF Fest in August. Second place CO2 saver gets a 3-month supply of KIND Snacks. Third place is awarded a 3-session training certificate to Dethrone Basecamp. In addition, 2 randomly selected winners receive movie passes to American Cinematheque theaters.
