Welcome to the getDowntown Program's home for our challenges! 

The 2024 Commuter Challenge runs May 1-31 and is meant to encourage participants to commute to work in the Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti areas by bike, bus, walking, and carpool instead of driving alone. Participants can log trips to become eligible for individual prizes and random drawings for gift cards to local businesses.

Use this website to enter the challenge and keep track of the trips you make. First time participants can watch this short tutorial on how to sign up and navigate the platform. 

The getDowntown Program provides commuting programs and services to downtown Ann Arbor employees and employers. A program of TheRide, getDowntown's partners include the City of Ann Arbor and the Ann Arbor DDA.
