The Get There Challenge is an annual challenge to encourage people who live or work in Oregon to drive alone less and use transportation options more. Transportation options include biking, walking, transit, carpooling, vanpooling, or working remotely.
The Get There Challenge, now in its 10th year, is hosted by the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) and its partners across the state. Learn more about ODOT’s partners here.

Anyone who is 18 years of age or older and lives or works in Oregon is eligible to participate. Please note that primary sponsor contacts and employees of ODOT and its contractors are not eligible to win prizes.
