Published May 26, 2013 at 05:00AM

Commute Options recently announced that Commute Options Week is turning into the Drive Less Challenge.

Originally a week-long event held in June, the new program is a statewide event that takes place the last two weeks of October.

According to organizers, participants create a free, online account with the statewide rideshare database, Drive Less Connect (www.drivelessconnect.com). Once registered, participants can log in sustainable commutes and earn rewards.

Sustainable commutes include any trip that involves “a sustainable mode of transportation, including walking, biking, taking the bus, teleworking, carpooling/vanpooling, and even using a longboard/skateboard,” according to a news release.
