DART Goes Even Greener with Clean Commute Challenge

DART First State showed their green side by holding their first annual DART Clean Commute Challenge.  This statewide challenge encouraged DART employees to try a clean commute for just one day.  Many team members are now taking a clean commute as part of their daily routine.

To gear up for the challenge, RideShare Delaware hosted “Pledge Days” at multiple DART locations.  At the “Pledge Days,” employees learned about the benefits of clean commuting, received details on the RideShare program, and pledged to take a clean commute.  On designated “Try It Days,” team members that followed through on their pledge were rewarded for their clean commute.

The DART employees made a big impact with their Clean Commute Challenge.  Check out their numbers:

  • Total miles of single occupancy vehicle travel eliminated: 800
  • Equal to: almost 5 round trips from Newark to Rehoboth Beach
  • Top site: Beech/Monroe Street – highest percentage of clean commuters

Congratulations to the Beech/Monroe Street location, and the entire team at DART First State for making this Clean Commute Challenge a success!
