Community Mobilization Project

Community Mobilization Project 

Smart travel decisions benefit you, the environment and our community. The mission of the Community Mobilization Project is to build and empower a community of New Yorkers who care about managing their impact, reducing traffic congestion, helping the environment and improving the quality of life in their region.

The Community Mobilization Project will provide opportunities for local residents and businesses to come together and drive positive change in their communities. One way we will be rewarding and recognizing our change champions is through our Community Mobilization Badges which can be earned by completing simple tasks such as running a ride match, teleworking or tracking a trip. (see details below)

Additionally, the supporting partners who share our mission often donate gift cards that we use to reward members through raffles and other promotions for sharing photos and stories that demonstrate your commitment and inspire other members.
