Rideshare Month 2017 Commuter Challenge  Oct 1 to Oct 31, 2017

Participate in the Rideshare Month Commuter Challenge from October 1-31. Participants compete against like-sized groups and are asked to encourage their team members to get involved and participate. Winning groups will win prizes and bragging rights. Learn more about Rideshare Month at valleymetro.org

Take a leap from traffic gridlock to an alternative transportation mode during Rideshare Month. Carpool, vanpool, ride the bus or light rail, telework, bike or walk instead of commuting alone.

Compete with other teams of commuters who use alternative modes of transportation. Any ShareTheRide user can create a team. Teams are organized by size:

  • 5-10 members (small)
  • 11-15 members (medium)
  • 16-20 members (large)

Register your team by September 22, 2017.

Team members must join by September 29, 2017.

Teams must have at least five members to be eligible for prizes. Teams with fewer than five participants can be combined. Call Commute Solutions at 602.262.RIDE (7433) for assistance.

Challenge Prizes:

Small team: Red Pin Party at Lucky Strike for up to eight people and one night stay at Pointe Hilton Tapatio Resort. Limited edition ShareTheRide Commuter Challenge winner t-shirt for each member of the winning team.

Medium team: Red Pin Party at Lucky Strike for up to eight people and one night stay at Pointe Hilton Squaw Peak. Limited edition ShareTheRide Commuter Challenge winner t-shirt for each member of the winning team.

Large team: Red Pin Party at Lucky Strike for up to eight people and one night stay at Hotel Valley Ho. Limited edition ShareTheRide Commuter Challenge winner t-shirt for each member of the winning team.

Anyone joining a challenge team who tracks at least four trips in October can enter to win a $25 AMC Theatres gift card (six available).

All Commuter Challenge participants are eligible for a quarterly contest to win a visit to Sea Life Aquarium for up to four people if they track at least 12 trips from October through December.

Winning teams and runners-up will receive a certificate.

Any ShareTheRide user can join the Commuter Challenge or create a team. There is no charge to create a team or participate. Teams must have at least five members to participate. For assistance with increasing your team size, call Commute Solutions at 602.262.RIDE (7433).

Register a team, track commute trips and monitor your team’s progress on ShareTheRide’s Commuter Challenge page.

Teams must register by September 22, 2017.

Team members must join by September 29, 2017.

Commute trips must be added by November 9, 2017. Only commute trips qualify.

All teams and team members must join by the registration date. No new teams or team members will be accepted after the final date for registration.

Once trip-tracking for the Challenge is closed, winning teams will be recognized. 

Teams are ranked according percent of team members participating, total distance, and total number of trips. The participation rating is the percentage of team members who logged at least one alternative mode commute trip.

A winning team will have the highest participation rate and highest number of alternative mode miles tracked. Ties are possible. In the event of a tie, the tie breaker will be determined by number of alternative mode commutes tracked. 


Teams are organized by size:

  • 5-10 members (small)
  • 11-15 members (medium)
  • 16-20 members (large)

Challenge prizes awarded to individual team member winners are selected randomly by Valley Metro Commute Solutions staff.

Winning teams will be recognized and receive special prizes. Runners-up will be recognized!
