|Join local commuters, colleges, high schools, and businesses in the fifth annual CATA Clean Commute Challenge! |
CATA Clean Commute Options Program is dedicated to improving air
quality in Clinton, Eaton, and Ingham Counties by helping individuals
traveling to, or within, the region choose travel options other than
Clean commutes include any trip made using the bus, carpooling,
vanpooling, biking, walking – anything other than driving alone.
The Clean Commute Challenge encourages individuals to make the
commitment to trying one or more of the 5 ways to clean commute during
the 5-day challenge, in hopes that participants will realize just how
easy it is to clean commute every week!
It’s easy…You can sign up

High School Challenge
Lansing area high schools, Okemos and East Lansing, will be competing in the High School Challenge, held Wednesday, September 26th, to see who can empty their parking lot and log the most clean commutes! Local officials will be counting vacant parking spaces. Once the results are in, the winning school will receive the Annual Clean Commute Challenge Trophy, created from scrap/recycled materials.
Businesses from across the tri-county area are putting together short videos highlighting their “green” efforts. A panel of celebrity judges from the City Pulse, The Greater Lansing Business Monthly, and WLNS TV will view all the videos and choose the top business.
- Colleges also have the chance to compete during Challenge Week in an effort to log the most alternative commutes as a campus. The campus with the most clean commutes will be named the Cleanest Commuting College.
- Campus Challenge Participants (to date): Michigan State University (MSU), Lansing Community College (LCC), Grand Rapids Community College (GRCC) and Central Michigan University (CMU).
- All Campus Challenge Participants may select from a “drop-down” menu listing the participating campuses, to find their college and appropriately track their commutes.
- Press releases and coverage of our Campus Challenge winner will be available following the Challenge. If you are interest in accessing this for use in your newsletter, local paper, etc., please let us know.
