Get There Greener 2023

Go Coast’s Get There Greener challenge is an annual event that encourages WMPO Area residents to move sustainably during the month of October! Traffic congestion is a major cause of air pollution and much of our stress. We challenge you to use an SOV (single-occupancy vehicle) as little as possible and instead utilize alternative transportation like biking, walking, carpool, transit, and telecommuting. Participants can win prizes like gift cards to local businesses.

How to Participate

1. Sign up to participate – submit your email on this interest form, and we’ll email you when the challenge starts and send weekly reminders to track your trips.

2. Track your miles each time you use anything other than a single-occupancy vehicle to get around between October 1 and 31. 2023’s tracking form will be posted on October 1! Participants can track every time they use the following modes:

  • Carpooling
  • Public transportation
  • Bicycling
  • Walking
  • Telecommuting

If you’re new to alternative transportation and need help taking a trip by bike or bus, check out our personalized commuter plan form where we will give you customized step-by-step directions on what to do.

2023’s leaderboard will be posted in October and updated weekly! To view 2022’s leaderboard, please click here.
