Activate Your Commute

The Activate Your Commute campaign closed yesterday and we would like to send a friendly reminder to log your biking and walking trips to work for the month of October. You are able to go back and log your trips for the entire month of October. Even you log a commute once, you are still eligible to win fantastic prizes!

3 Ways to Deal with the Busiest Commute Day of the Year

activate your commute
Halloween not only brings the ghosts and goblins out in full force, it’s the busiest commute day of the year with everyone rushing home to fix dinner, don costumes and hit the streets in time for trick-or-treating.

Want a happier commute on Halloween? Try one of these three R’s:

1. Reduce: If you can telework (work from home), or work from a location closer to home, Halloween would be a good day to give it a try.
2. Re-time: Think about shifting your work hours, starting and leaving earlier, for example, to avoid peak congestion times.
3. Re-mode: Consider walking, cycling or taking public transit to reduce the time you might otherwise spend in traffic. It’s one more way to activate your commute.

Happy Halloween from your Smart Commute Team
