What is it?
The Rogue Commute Challenge allows workplaces to team together and compete against other local workplace teams to see who can log more walking, biking, carpooling, transit, or telecommute trips and earn glory by being named King of the Rogue Commuters! This fun competition is a great way to learn more about your commute options, earn prizes, get healthy, reduce your carbon footprint and build camaraderie with your co-workers all while competing to have your workplace win the Rogue Commute Challenge!
Why the Rogue Commute Challenge?
The Challenge is all about fun, building teamwork, and learning about the commute options available in the Rogue Valley. Southern Oregon is a beautiful place to live and there are many benefits to living in such a great place, including a number of options to get you from home to work that save you money, improve your health and reduce your carbon footprint. RVTD houses the region's Transportation Options program, helping people connect to options such as walking, biking, carpooling, and transit as well as experiencing the benefits that come with these commute options. We hope to improve the mobility of Southern Oregon's workforce through this fun event.
How does the Rogue Commute Challenge Work?
Rogue Commute Challenge will utilize Oregon’s Drive Less Connect Ridematching and Trip Logging tool to keep track of progress, trips, and miles logged throughout the Challenge.
During the Challenge, May 7-20, participants will log their walking, biking, carpooling, teleworking, and transit trips into their DriveLessConnect.com accounts, which will automatically add those trips and miles onto their workplace network in Drive Less Connect. Team standings and individual leaders will be posted on this website, Rogue Commute Challenge Facebook, as well as RVTD Facebook, Twitter and Instagram feeds. Allowing workplaces to see how they stack up against their competition everyday. At the end of the week all trips and participation will be totaled and a winning Workplace will be named as the winner of the 2018 Rogue Commute Challenge.
Participants logging their trips into Drive Less Connect as part of the Rogue Commute Challenge will earn prizes throughout the Challenge just for exploring their transportation options!
