Earth Week Mobility Challenge, Prizes & More!

Commute Green during Earth Week!

Take the CATMA Earth Week Mobility Challenge, by logging trips and attending events. We encourage you to use transit, carpool, walk, or bike for your commuter trips April 22-26, 2019.

Log trips with the GoVermont website or app (iOS or Android) and attend events throughout the week to be eligible to win prizes! Each day will feature a different mode! Log that day’s mode as a trip in the app for even more prizes from CATMA and Champlain!

Anyone living or working in Chittenden County and All Champlain students and employees are encouraged to join the challenge!
