Walk Ride

Beginning March 30 until September 28, help create safe, healthier and more vibrant streets and communities by greening your commute.  Biking, walking, public transit, telecommuting and carpooling all count! The Corporate Challenge is a competition among Boston area employers to see which workplace has the highest percentage of staff going car-free or car-light on Walk/Ride Days.
