Commuter Connect is offering a fun, free and easy way for your company and its employees to earn recognition for your company's efforts to be sustainable, health-minded and employee-friendly. The 2012 Commuter Challenge - held during the month of October, Rideshare Month - encourages commuters to use alternative transportation - carpool, vanpool, bus, bike or walking. Every time your employees use a form of alternative transportation to get to or from work and log it online at CommuterConnect.us , they'll get a chance to win prizes - including a $500 gift card - and the firm earns the chance to be recognized as one of Central Indiana's most commuter-friendly employers. All it takes is not driving alone to or from work one time during October to take part. We'll announce individual winners weekly and at the end of the month through the Commuter Connect website, Facebook and Twitter, and we'll recognize our top employer participants in an ad in the Indianapolis Business Journal and through other public recognitions.To make your part in this process easier, we're providing some tools to share with your employees. You can access any of them at http://www.cirta.us/ commuterconnect/challenge- promote/. • Printable poster,• Various sizes of banner ads for intranets, • 250-word newsletter article,• E-card with video (we'll send that to you next week) Check out how easy it is to log a commute at www.CommuterConnect.us/Challenge.
