Driving our cars wherever we go is second nature. But all those miles are detrimental to our environment. With a little planning and creativity, we can disrupt this pattern and do some good to our world’s health.
That’s why we sponsor the Good to Go Commuter Challenge each spring! You can do more good for our world by leaving your car at home and choosing to walk, bike, ride the bus, carpool, or telecommute. Track these sustainable miles for the week and see how much good you can do!
This May, join your friends and colleagues in a competition to log the most sustainable trips in a one-week period. Walking, biking, riding the bus, carpooling, and telecommuting are all eligible.
- One $200 Visa gift card, winner selected randomly at the end.
- Daily $25 Visa gift cards, winners selected randomly at the end of each day.
- Daily $25 Visa gift cards, winners selected randomly from Mode of the Day participants (see schedule below).
- Three $50 Visa gift cards to the most trips logged in walking, biking, and transit
You just need to log one trip to be eligible to win the $200 prize!

Registration and logging your sustainable miles is a breeze with the easy-to-use platform. Check it out at www.goodtogomclean.org. Participating automatically enters you into the daily and final raffles!
New this year
Commute Tracker app
You can also use the RideAmigos app to register and log your trips as well! Commute Tracker by RideAmigos is available for download for free at the iTunes App Store and Google Play.
Mode of the Day
Good to Go is all about supporting and spreading awareness of sustainable transportation methods, so this year we’re adding an extra prize for commuters who participate in the Mode of the Day! Every day there will be a different Mode of the Day and by participating and logging your trip on the app or website, you’ll automatically be added to a raffle for a $25 Visa gift card! This is your chance to try out our trails, our transit system, or even make some new friends around town through a carpool and possibly win some extra spending money for it (while making yourself and the Earth more healthy)! Check out the schedule and start planning for how you might be able to participate!
