Massachusetts Clean Air Challenge
September 17–25

Each year, Massachusetts travelers strive to improve air-quality by choosing more sustainable transportation options during the Massachusetts Clean Air Challenge. This year, Massachusetts challenges you to explore your commuting options from September 17th–25th. Let's show how much we can save in money and carbon emissions throughout the entire Commonwealth in one work week!

Get Involved! »

Participating in the Massachusetts Clean Air Challenge is FREE, and it's easy! Try traveling by foot, bicycle, carpool, vanpool, transit, or telecommuting for as many trips as you can during September 17th–25th.

  1. Register in NuRide, the Commonwealth’s ridematching and commuter rewards system (if you’re already registered, skip this step!).
  2. Log your trips. Record every green trip (carpool, vanpool, bicycle, walk, transit, telecommute) between September 17th–25th you take in NuRide. Use the trip calendar if you plan on repeating the same trip, or log just one trip you might be able to squeeze into your busy schedule after the fact. For your green and active trips logged during the Clean Air Challenge week, you will be eligible to win one of seven large gift cards.
  3. Get social! Every time you use #MACleanAir on Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook, you have the chance to win one of several smaller gift cards.
» » After the Challenge is over, keep tracking your green trips in NuRide to earn points at restaurants, retailers and attractions.
