#SmartCommuteTheRoute

Join other businesses and employers from across the state in participating in CommuteSmart NH’s Pilot Statewide Challenge! See which team will be the champions! Bike, walk, skateboard, telecommute, carpool, motorpool, use public transit, or any combination of these modes June 1-30!

Addition information on how to register and sign up is coming soon! This site will be updated once the challenge registration is open.

Challenge Details

During the entire month of June, log any trip you make to work in a manner other than driving in a vehicle alone. The challenge permits various modes including walking, biking, transit, carpool, telecommuting (working at home), or any combination of these options. All trips will be logged on the NH Rideshare software and participants will be required to create their own login (Don’t worry- it’s free!)

Form a team with your co-workers and compete with other teams around the state. Depending on the size of your employer, your team may be your department, unit, division, branch or the entire company. In fact, many may find it fun to create friendly competition between other departments or branches of a company.

Don’t have a team? You can also participate as an individual! More information on how to participate as an individual will be available soon. 

Challenge Awards

Most sustainable trips. For this category, an award will be given to the team (in each size category) which has logged the most sustainable trips on a per capita basis. For fairness, participating teams are grouped into four size categories based on the total number of employees:

  • Individual (1 employee participating on their own)
  • Small (2-19 employees)
  • Medium (20-99 employees)
  • Large (100+ employees)

Most social media buzz. This award will be given to the team with the most social media buzz. To be eligible, each social media post must include #SmartCommuteTheRoute and the team name. Points will be awarded based on the following system:

  • Three points for each original post, one point for retweet or Facebook “like”; one point for Twitter “favorite” or Facebook “Comment”, one point for Instagram like or repost.
  • One point for each social media platform used.
  • One point for each unique author.
  • Five points for each video.
