Which journeys count? The aim of the Challenge is to reduce the number of journeys by car on your own. Any journeys to work or for work that are carried out on foot, by bike, by public transport or lift-sharing all count. You can also log a ‘work at home’ day if it means you don’t have to travel to the office by car on your own. The more journeys you do by sustainable modes, the higher up the leaderboard you’ll get.
How do I win?
Workplaces The winning workplace in each size category will be the workplace that achieves the highest level of participation. This means that you need to get your colleagues involved and encourage them to have at least one go at travelling by a different, more sustainable mode of transport rather than just reaching for the car keys and driving. They just have to try one journey and log it to be included as a participant and to get your team’s participation percentage up. We hope that they will enjoy it and try it again.
Individual To get to the top of the individual leaderboard you have to log more journeys than anyone else. We’ll be giving out a prize to the individual leader at the end of the Challenge but we’ll also be giving out lots of prizes along the way. To be eligible for these prizes you need to log at least 1 journey a week.
