York, Pa. (April 13, 2015) – Commuter Services of Pennsylvania is challenging commuters to give up driving alone to work and try a green commute mode during its annual Earth Day challenge, April 19-25, 2015. One commuter in each of the region’s nine counties will receive a prize and the employer with the most employee participation will win a pizza party for those participating. There will be one randomly selected grand prize winner who will receive an iPod shuffle.
Commuter Services encourages commuters to try transit, carpool, vanpool, bike, walk or even telecommute to work during the week of Earth Day each year. In 2014, 336 commuters participated and logged more than 69,000 miles during the challenge.
