Why would I join the Billings Commuter Challenge?
Lots of reasons!

What COVID-19 precautions are you taking?
While workplaces can compete as teams in the Challenge, active commuting can be done as a solo activity. Please always follow the latest public health guidelines if you chose to commute with others. All Challenge activities will proceed according to public health guidelines.

How do you calculate your C02 saved numbers?
We calculate this estimiate using data from this source and the miles logged per mode. There are many varying factors involved and not accounted for so this should only be considered a (very) rough estimate.
