Green Commute Challenge - Sign up today!

Along with other Kansas City metro organizations, UMKC is participating in the Green Commute Challenge, a contest sponsored by MARC (Mid-America Regional Council).  The purpose of the contest is to encourage commuters to use alternative forms of transportation to get to and from work, and to find other ways to reduce miles driven.

The contest will run from July 6th-August 28th.  Those who log miles will receive points.  Ways to earn points (and become eligible for prizes) include:  carpooling, riding the bus, walking, telecommuting, riding your bicycle, staying in for lunch, etc.

Both UMKC and MARC will be awarding prizes throughout the contest to those participating in the challenge.  Prizes include:

  • gas gift cards

  • UMKC bookstore gift cards

  • t-shirts, and more!

Help UMKC get more involved in "going green" and gain presence among other KC metro employers.  Learn more about the program at www.marc.org/rideshare/challenge, go for the challenge and sign up today!
