Business News |Apr 17, 2017|2 min read

Muskegon, MI (June 12 to 16, 2017)- Muskegon Area Smart Commute Week replaces Bike to Work Week and consists of events promoting cycling, walking, running, taking the bus and carpooling. Free breakfast and loads of perks from local businesses are hosted at various locations around the greater Muskegon Area.
Community members challenge each other to a friendly competition known as the Smart Commute Week Challenge. Register as an individual or create a team and rack up points to qualify for prizes with every smart commute trip you make.

The purpose of this initiative is to encourage the use of healthy alternatives to single rider motorized transportation, decreasing distracted driving, easing traffic congestion, and reducing air pollution in the Muskegon Area. In addition our goal for this event is to rally 500 participants to find alternative transportation for all commuting needs.

June 12 to 16, 2017

All Smart Commute Week participants will register on our Facebook site as an individual or create your own team. Team Captains will log daily activities for smart commuting (any form of alternative transportation earns you points as well as attending the free breakfast) and winning individuals and teams will earn free prizes donated by local event sponsors. In addition, by showing your registration card all participants will be eligible for beverage discounts from selected Muskegon Area merchants. Participants must register online at our Facebook page in order to be eligible for prizes and business discounts.
