UNCG Campus Transportation Challenge

Save money, help the environment and register for multiple chances to win great prizes by participating in the annual UNCG Campus Transportation Challenge.

Step 1: Pledge to try a form of sustainable transportation – bike, bus, carpool, walk or Zipcar – at least once before July 9. Completing an online or paper pledge form is quick and easy; the pledge process takes less than a minute of your time.

Step 2: Pick a form of sustainable transportation (anything other than driving alone) and give it a try at least once before July 9th.

Don’t drive a car to campus? You’re already using sustainable transportation so why not go ahead and submit a pledge form to be rewarded for your efforts?

In exchange for pledging to drive alone less, participants may receive a free tote bag or lunch bag, two PART bus passes, and a reflective blinking light to enhance bicycle and pedestrian safety. Also, you will be entered to win prizes including a new bicycle ($500 value), an iPad 2, athletic gear, bike helmets, bike locks, gift certificates, and more!

Weekly prize drawings begin April 9. Earn extra points and increase your chance of winning by collecting pledges from friends. Earn even more points by collecting bike registrations too.

Pledge online at http://partnc.org/challenge.html or stop by the parking office adjacent to the Walker Avenue Parking Deck for more information.

The UNCG Campus Transportation Challenge is a university initiative to support the annual Triad Commute Challenge sponsored by the Piedmont Authority for Regional Transportation (PART) and Triad Air Awareness. Last year PART collected 4,002 pledges throughout the 10-county Triad region, about half of which came from UNCG. Its goal this year is 5,000 pledges with a least half coming from UNCG.
