Reboot Your Commute! October 16-31, 2021

Why Participate?!

The Go Coast Commuter Challenge is an annual event that encourages you to move sustainably! Traffic congestion is a major cause of much of our stress. We challenge you to use an SOV (single occupant vehicle) as little as possible and instead utilize alternative transportation like biking, walking, carpool, transit, and telecommuting.

Top participants will win prizes like gift cards to local businesses.
