2017 Detroit Commuter Challenge
May 28 2017
Wayne State invites the entire campus community to participate in the Detroit Commuter Challenge, a month-long campaign to encourage more sustainable and healthy forms of commuting. Participating in the Challenge is easy. Do you normally drive to campus? Carpool with a friend. Do you normally take the bus? Try biking instead. Log your trips online during the month of May and you'll be entered to win great prizes. Our goal is for Wayne State to be among the Top 5 employers the Commuter Challenge Leaderboard. Sign up today! Commuting Made Easy DDOT and RefleX recently added new routes to Midtown, and the QLINE and Detroit Bike Share will launch in May. See below for details.
