Commute Smart B2B Challenge – May 1 – 31
BIKE. CARPOOL. WALK. TELECOMMUTE. RIDE THE BUS. WIN!
The Commute Smart B2B Challenge happens every year in the month of May. We invite all employers located in Seacoast NH to compete for the honor of having the smartest, greenest commuting workforce. There are great prizes, trophies, social media buzz, and the exhilarating thrill of victory!
This competition is all about getting more people to use sustainable transportation like biking, riding the bus, carpooling, vanpooling, walking or telecommuting. We encourage participating employers to designate team captains to recruit and cheer on the team members.
EVERYONE WINS by saving money, lowering stress and doing something good for the environment. The teamwork feels great, too!
What is CommuteSmart?
CommuteSMART Seacoast is a Transportation Management Association (TMA) that promotes smart commuting options like carpooling, vanpooling, riding the bus, bicycling, walking and teleworking. Our mission is to support a livable and economically vibrant greater Seacoast community.
We are funded by the Federal Department of Transportation and the NH Turnpike Authority and sponsored by COAST (Cooperative Alliance for Seacoast Transportation).

Prizes will be awarded in the following categories:
- Reduced Car Trips. The grand prize will go to one company in each size category (small, medium, large, extra large, extra extra large). Reduced trips is defined as the number of vehicle trips not taken during the challenge period. So, for example, if you were in a vanpool with six others, and logged your trip, that would count as 5 reduced trips.
- Most Social Media Buzz. A prize will go to the company that creates the greatest amount of social buzz about the challenge, measured by the number of posts on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
For a post to qualify you must:
• Include the hashtag, #CommuteToWin
• State your company name somewhere within your post
