Spread the Word About the Challenge

As part of the launch of Get There, the Oregon Drive Less Challenge will now be the Get There Challenge. We’re excited to promote the new tool as part of the Challenge to make it easier for all Oregonians to find better ways to make their trips.

Use this Partner Communications Toolkit to encourage your community or workplace to participate in this year’s Get There Challenge from October 7–21, 2019, as well as sign up for the new Get There tool. We’ve also included a special section for employers who want to help their employees discover better ways to commute to work.

This toolkit includes website and social media content, email/newsletter items, a downloadable poster/flier, graphics, and photos that you can use as is or tailor to meet your needs. Tips for use are included under each content category. Graphics and photos are available to download under General Promotions.

If you have questions, please contact Hannah Mullin at [email protected] or 503-200-3280.
