The May Mode Shift Challenge is open to anyone who:
Note that the Town of Lexington is a special sponsor of the Mode Shift Challenge this year, which means that any participants who live or work in Lexington are eligible for special prizes.
You can always edit your workbook to pick a later week instead. We just need to receive your workbook by June 16th, 2023.
As long as you are replacing a car trip, it doesn’t matter whether you would have been the driver or not. If you ride your bike instead of taking an Uber, or if you take the bus instead of asking a friend for a ride, that counts!
Yes! This challenge isn’t just about your work commute! Please consider all of the car trips you take throughout the week (store, school, doctor’s office, wherever!), regardless of purpose or ending location.
Please only record trips that would have been taken by car. However, if you normally drive to a park or trailhead before starting your ride or walk, that car trip could be shifted to a different mode!
We are asking all participants to report two shifted trips, and we will reward every participant who submits their completed workbook equally.
We can sponsor an organization- or community-specific Mode Shift Challenge for your employees, tenants or residents—either during Bay State Bike Month or another time of year. Just contact us!
Just email us. We are here to help!
