Great Race for Clean Air

The Bay Area Air Quality Management District and the Tri-Valley Air Quality Resource Team present the Great Race for Clean Air 2015. Be a part of the challenge to make a difference in the Bay Area. The Great Race for Clean Air is a friendly competition between Bay Area employers to encourage the use of commute alternatives, and determine who will reign as the company with the best Bay Area Commuters!

The Great Race
Companies register for the program and their employees keep track of their clean commute days through 511's online trip diary.  All participating employees will be eligible for weekly prize drawings for gift cards to popular merchants.  The Great Race for Clean Air will run from September 1st through October 31st, 2015 and is a great opportunity for employers to show concern for their employees and the environment.  For more on how employers can join the Great Race for Clean Air and to see a list of last year's winning companies, please visit www.sparetheair.org/get-involved/great-race-for-clean-air.
