Welcome to Commuter Choice Challenge!

Friends of Pathways is excited to bring you a Summer Transportation Challenge. Participants have the opportunity to form teams or compete on their own, logging non-recreational trips via walking, biking, carpooling or riding the START bus.  

Prizes are awarded to individuals throughout the summer via our Mini Challenges.  Additionally, end of season Grand Prizes are awarded to individuals and teams for the most miles logged, most trips, and more!  Note that teams are divided into three categories:  1) Small team of 2-3 people, 2) Medium team of 4-14 people, and 3) Large team of 15+ people.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Take 30 seconds to create your free account using the form on this page. If you want to participate on a team (typically your place of work) create a team together and log miles as a group.
  2. With your account, you can log the miles (aka your ‘trips’) for any daily commuting you do, whether it’s for work, running errands, or just to socialize.
  3. As you and other participants log your miles, we’ll show you real-time stats: how many trips you’ve made, miles you’ve ridden, calories you’ve burned, gas money you’ve saved, and CO2 emissions you’ve eliminated.
  4. Not only will you be able to see your own stats, but you’ll be able to compare and compete with other riders and teams (if that’s your thing.)
A note about what defines a trip…A trip is defined as each time you start and end a walk/ride.  Trips can be broken up throughout the day.  For example, biking to work and then biking home counts as two trips.  Walking from the office to and from the post office counts as two trips.  Another way to look at it is each time you would have started your car but didn’t, count it as a trip.
