October is National Rideshare month and for the last 3 years GO MAINE has held Way 2 GO MAINE, a business to business challenge. A chance for Maine employers to compete against each other for signing up the most GO MAINE members, for recording the most green commutes and for showing off Team Spirit all while having fun and making a difference. During the pandemic GO MAINE understands that many folks may not be working in their usual way, there may not be much comradery in the office, offices may be kitchen tables and trying something new like a carpool is just not a safe choice.
In 2020 we want to celebrate all the green commutes that are happening out there, even during a pandemic. We all need reasons to celebrate.
Please join us for Way 2 GO MAINE 2020, Celebrating the Great Green Commute. It’s easy and there are many chances to win prizes and show off your green commutes, whether that’s a walk down the hall to a home office, a bus trip to an essential job or a walk around the corner, we want to see and hear all about it. There’s no registering your employer but we would ask that you rally your troops through whatever means works for you in the new normal.
More info can be found here.
Below is a list of the “races” this year. It’s easy to participate record your trips and show us your pics with #Way2GOMAINE.
TEAM SPIRIT RACE: Calling all employers!
Lead your employee team to greatness. Just like in years past show off your Team Spirit by posting pictures with #Way2GOMAINE. Don’t forget to tag your employer so we can keep track!
