The Drive Less Challenge is a grassroots initiative that started in Menlo Park in 2009 and is expanding each year to more communities on the San Francisco Peninsula and in the South Bay. It’s mission is to promote health, quality of life, and environmentally sustainable transportation behavior by reducing solo car trips. The Challenge encourages participants to try out alternative transportation modes like public transit, biking, walking, and carpooling during the event period and beyond. Participants track their progress online and can win prizes from local merchants, a feature that encourages local shopping and further reduces car miles.

The sponsoring communities of the Drive Less Challenge advocate, inspire, and support action among their residents, businesses, and institutions to live more sustainable. We believe we can make a difference through local action. For 2011 the sponsoring communities are listed on our home page.
