How to Enter

Login or register online. Earn one entry for every day that a “smart” commute option is logged on the Commute Calendar (carpool, vanpool, transit, bike or walk).

Challenge Period

The Commuter Challenge runs Tuesday, May 1, 2018 at 12:01 a.m. EDT through Thursday, May 31, 2018, at 11:59 p.m. EDT.


All participants in the Challenge must register and create an account at or use their existing Commuter Connect account to track their eligible commute trips using the Commute Calendar tool. To be eligible for the weekly drawings, participants must log their eligible trips for the previous week by Monday, May 7, 14, 21, and Tuesday, May 29 by 5:00 p.m. EDT. To be eligible for the grand prize drawing, all eligible trips for May must be logged by Monday, June 4 at 5:00 p.m. EDT.

Every eligible commute trip logged will earn one entry for that individual into the weekly prize drawing for the corresponding week. All logged commute trips will also earn one entry for the month-long prize drawing. Eligible commute trips include carpooling, taking transit, biking, walking or vanpooling. Winners are only eligible to win one weekly prize and one prize in the month-long grand prize drawing.


There will be four individual winners each week (May1 – 25) and grand prize/runner-up winners at the beginning of June. By participating in the Challenge, individuals agree to the use of their names, hometowns, employer, likenesses and/or recognition information for promotional purposes in any medium without additional compensation, or notice to winners, to the extent permitted by law.

The weekly prizes are:

  • IndyGo 31-day pass valued at $60
  • $50 Gas card for carpools and/or vanpools
  • $50 bike shop or sporting goods store gift card
