THANK YOU FoR TAKING PART IN JULY's Green Your Commute Challenge!
During the week of July 19-25, TBARTA and Commute Tampa Bay encouraged drivers to Green Your Commute with a weeklong promotional challenge. Thanks to your efforts, the challenge week's registrations on Commute Tampa Bay rose 11.6% compared to the week prior.
If you have recently started using alternative commute trips, keep it up! Not only do you save money and help the environment, you also accumulate benefits when you continue to log those trips on the Commute Tampa Bay app.
Stay tuned for another challenge later this year!
