Clean Air Challenge 2015Take the Challenge!

By participating in the Massachusetts Clean Air Challenge commuters will improve air-quality by choosing more sustainable transportation options during the week-long promotion.

This year, Massachusetts challenges you to explore your commuting options from September 20th-27th by choosing greener modes of transportation including carpooling, vanpooling, bicycling, walking, and riding transit. Participants are part of a collective effort to reduce the number of cars on the road, which reduces harmful emissions and improves our air quality.

Participating in the Clean Air Challenge is free, and it’s easy! Rethink your commute to work or other trips throughout the week and try traveling by foot, bicycle, carpool, vanpool, or transit for as many trips as you can between September 20th-27th. Last year, challenge participants reported over 26,000 green trips in one week – let’s take even more this year!

Track your trips!

Register in NuRide, the Commonwealth’s ridematching and commuter rewards program. Take as many green trips as you can between September 20th-27th and record them using the NuRide trip calendar. NuRide is Massachusetts’ ridematching and rewards program. It’s free and easy to use and is available year round.

Win prizes for contributing to cleaner air!

Daily Prizes– Every day during the Challenge, a $100 Amazon gift card will be awarded to a randomly selected NuRide participant.

Let’s get social!

Use #MACleanAir to show how you’re commuting on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. We’ll share our favorite pictures and tweets to help motivate other Bay Staters try a new way of traveling to work.

Repeat! Use NuRide all year long to track your green trips, and continue to earn rewards.

MassRIDES employer partners, colleges, universities, and Massachusetts cities and towns are also encouraged to take part. Contact MassRIDES for help planning your promotions and visit www.commute.com/cleanair for other resources.

The #MACleanAir Challenge is co-sponsored by MassDOT, MassRIDES, and MassCommute.
