With 12 days left in the 2010 campaign, 4151 Triangle folks have taken the SmartCommute Challenge.
You simply pledge to try a new way of getting to work or to campus. How hard is that?
The deadline is May 15. Participants are eligible for bikes, gadgets, $1500 cash and other prizes.
I know from past SmartCommute campaigns that this is how lots of people discover whether taking the bus could be a real option for them. Sometimes, they find the answer is Yes.
This year the three-county campaign also features a Flickr photo contest with $750 for the best pic submitted by folks showing how they bike, bus, walk, carpool or (I'm leaving something out I know) telecommute to work. Oh, or vanpool. I know they don't say telecommute any more - they say telework.
