CarFree Challenge

We are seeking organizations who want to be 2017 MOBILITY CHAMPIONS! Our 2017 CarFree Challenge will focus on working directly with several individual organizations by providing them with pro-bono customized transportation services to help their employees avoid increasing congestion in our region, develop a better work/life balance, improve their productivity and health, and save money.

 

Find a detailed description of the offer here.

 

Thank you to the Greater New Haven Green Fund for the resources that make this program possible. 

Thank you to all who participated in the 2016 goNewHavengo September CarFree Challenge. Over the course of the month, businesses and individuals competed to see who could use their cars the least and travel more sustainably. Results on the overall impact of the CarFree Challenge and of the winning companies are coming soon. See below for prize descriptions.

 

Even though the contest has ended, we hope everyone continues to use CTrides Commuter Rewards (NuRide).  Logging trips will still get you NuRide points toward rewards and discounts. You can even use the points you gained in September regardless of how well you did in the contest!

Results

We put together a startup toolkit with resources to help you spread the word and get ready for the CarFree Challenge. The toolkit includes social media posts, e-mail templates, flyers, and ideas to spread the word around the workplace for those already gearing up for 2017! Download the toolkit.
