What is a Mode Shift Challenge?

Perhaps the biggest barrier to getting out of your car and onto a more environmentally-friendly and congestion-reducing mode is the sheer convenience of being able to climb into a car and go.

Shifting to bike, walking or public transit requires planning ahead. Let us help you do the planning necessary to actually start changing your daily habits!

Participants in our Mode Shift Challenge program win prizes by shifting trips from car to bike, walking or public transit.

This can include shifting car trips to MBTAThe GridLexpress, or other high-capacity bus/shuttle services.

Along the way, participants are invited to set goals and reflect back on how to achieve even greater Mode Shift success in the future.

We know that not everyone’s life circumstances are the same, and thus prizes are not based upon the greatest number of converted trips or the highest mileage. Rather, we reward everyone who completes the exercise of planning and reflecting!

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 raffle prizes!
