Starbucks Commute Coffee Crowd Challenge


The Town of Chapel Hill is partnering with Starbucks Chapel Hill to encourage alternative transportation use to and from work in order to reduce traffic congestion while keeping the air and water clean!  This is considered seed planting by being an example so that others might try to get to and from work without a car at least 4 times annually, making for a better community all around!

How Can I Be Part of Go Commute Coffee Crowd — Fast:  Commit to using alternative transportation 4 times, in the next 12 months and tell us at the following link!

Savings & Value: The average drive to work is 20 miles one way.  Proven results show that for each mile not driven, one pound of carbon emissions is saved from going into the air!  If you use alternative forms of transportation, just 3 times annually, and 30 others also leave their cars at home 4 times annually… this equals 1240 pounds of carbon emissions from entering the air that we breath!  Just think of the savings if this occurs monthly?

What Counts:  Walking, Bicycling, Skateboarding, Carpooling, Vanpooling, Transit and Telework!

Free Rewards!  If you agree to leave your car at home at least 4 times in the next 12 months, there are endless possibilities for you regarding benefits.  Immediately you can pick up a Starbucks Wooden Nickel for your efforts!  Even bigger, you can earn points to receive gift cards to Triangle restaurants and businesses!  Be sure to check out the Go Triangle Go Perks program to receive other great gift cards! OH– No need to enter carpool information asked for, just general information and then track your trips to shoot for great gift cards!
