Employers

The Commuter Challenge provides an opportunity to educate and engage employees in an Earth-friendly program. 

By taking the Commuter Challenge, employees will:

  • Save money
  • Improve air quality
  • Find time to exercise! Incorporating biking or walking into a commute adds a fitness benefit. 

Employers can earn bragging rights for corporate citizenship by logging the most carbon dioxide (C02) reduced by green commutes. We can assist you by planning on-site events to educate employees and providing promotional materials to use within your business.

The goal is to improve air quality by alleviating drive-alone traffic. Introducing drivers to different kinds of transportation—such as biking, carpooling, making use of flextime and telecommute options, public transportation, vanpooling, and walking—encourages individual changes in behavior that add up to a bid difference in our region's carbon footprint. 

We are excited for your participation and look forward to providing assistance in getting the word out to your employees. For additional information, please contact Iris Steinberg at rideshare@semcog.org or 313-324-3402.
