|Did you know that about 50% of all car trips are 3 miles or less? That's a distance easily covered on a bike in about 20 minutes or a leisurely walk can cover about 1 mile in 20 minutes.
Did you also know that Transportation is the leading source of carbon emissions? While transitioning to electric vehicles needs to be part of the solution, so is getting people to drive less in general (Bloomberg City Lab, Sept 2019, New York Times, March 2021).
So, for the months of July and August-take the One Less Car Trip Challenge to establish healthy habits, get ready for BayState Bike Month in September, and to reduce your carbon footprint and to combat climate change.
Join the challenge and then log your walking and biking trips in CommuteConnect each week. We'll randomly choose a winner at the end of every week to win a $10 Starbucks gift card and at the end of month, the grand prize winner will receive a $125 gift card for both July and August!
If you don't see the option to join this challenge be sure you have joined the Junction TMO program here: https://gomasscommute.com/junctiontmo
