Drive Less Somerset is a fun way to challenge yourself, your friends and your workplace to try sustainable ways to travel.
Take the bus or train, ride a bike, walk, carpool, vanpool or telecommute as often as possible during the month of June! Any trip for work or pleasure that replaces solo driving counts. Participating is easy and free.
If you want to participate as an individual, take the pledge and then track your trips starting June 1.
If you also want to participate in the Employer Challenge, then register your worksite (after taking the pledge) and track your trips starting June 1.
Individuals earn points towards weekly prizes when tracking trips. The individual who earns the most points overall from logged trips between June 1-June 30 will be named the 2019 Grand Challenge Champion and win a Tesla Weekend Experience in a Model 3.*
Employer challenge participants also earn points towards the weekly and grand prizes when tracking trips, and their logged trip miles count towards the worksite challenge. The Somerset County worksite with the most miles earned will be named the Drive Less Somerset Employer Champion for 2019.
