Healthy competition

Green Commute Challenge

Challenge yourself and your community to bike, walk, carpool, ride the bus or streetcar or vanpool.


The Green Commute Challenge is a free competition among Kansas City area commuters to reward taking sustainable transportation options to work. Throughout the challenge, members of employer- and community-based teams can log their green commute trips to earn points and get entered in weekly drawings for prizes from local businesses and makers. At the end of the challenge, prizes will be awarded for categories like most green commute trips completed on both the individual and team levels. 

By participating, not only will you save money, but you will also support your community, play a role in improving local air quality and become part of a larger community of people interested in sustainable transportation in the region. (Plus, did we mention the prizes?)


Grand Prize

Each year, the commuter who earns the most points during the challenge is awarded a fabulous grand prize. In 2023, the grand prize was a Momentum Voya E+ e-bike, courtesy of Elite Cycling

Weekly Prize Drawings

There are drawings for prizes from local businesses each week throughout the challenge. Become eligible for those drawings by logging your trips.
