The Walk & Ride Challenge

The mission of this annual event is to encourage your employees in your Transportation Management District (TMD) to learn how easy it is to incorporate walking into your daily routine when you consider alternative commute modes other than driving alone and sitting in traffic.

Track Your Steps

With your smartphone, you'll track the number of steps you take each day and enter them into your account on our online log. Here is how to use your smartphone to track your steps.

Watch Your Progress

You'll be able to watch your team's progress and check yourselves against other participating teams on a weekly basis.

Only Walking

This Challenge tracks walking ONLY. Do NOT track or report steps or activities from biking, rollerblading, running, aerobic classes, and other forms of exercise.
