5) What counts as a trip?
A: Any trip for any purpose that constitutes travel from one location to a second location using one of the following transportation options modes:
• Carpool
• Vanpool
• Telework
• Bus
• Train (i.e. light-rail/Max/WES/Street Car/Amtrak)
• Walk
• Bike

Trips can include travel for any purpose (work or personal) during the 15-day Challenge!

Please note the following:

  • These  following modes do not count: Driving alone, electric vehicles, and motorcycles.
  • Telework trips are defined as trips that you would  have otherwise made. If you are a remote worker (i.e., you would not otherwise commute to an office or other location) then you are not qualified to log telework trips. However, you can log other trip purposes; for example, if you walk to the store or ride a bike to dinner you can log those trips.
