Clean commuting has always been important, but with so many workers staying home, we can literally see the real difference it makes. Not only are clean commutes, like telework, helping to slow the spread of COVID-19, they are reducing congestion and producing visibly cleaner air.
This month, we want to reward you for taking a clean commute, even if that commute just involves sitting down with your laptop at the kitchen table. Downtown Connects is giving away four $50 gift cards for local Downtown businesses or donating $50 to a local charity (winner’s choice) to Downtown employees who log their clean commute trips on the Georgia Commute Options app or website.
If you are able to work from home, log your daily telework sessions from the safety and comfort of your home. If you are an essential worker who is taking transit, walking, biking, or carpooling to work, you can log your trips too!
Be on the lookout for other clean commute resources from Downtown Connects all month long, including:
Log at least 10 clean commute trips on your Georgia Commute Options account from May 1 to May 30, 2020. You will be entered to win a $50 gift card for a local Downtown business or have Downtown Connects donate $50 to a local charity. Clean commute trip modes include telework, biking, walking, taking transit, carpool, and vanpool.
If you currently work Downtown or typically work Downtown but are now working remotely, you are eligible for this promotion.
