About the Challenge
The Piedmont Authority for Regional Transportation in partnership with Triad Air Awareness hosts the Triad Commute Challenge every year. This three-month targeted effort improves air quality by challenging people to try an alternate commute option at least one time instead of driving alone. 2012 was a record-breaking year with 5,676 people, representing 579 employers, colleges and universities, doing their part to Share the Ride and Clean the Air!
This year’s goal is to reach 6,000 people.
