Winter, 2021

Greetings! We've missed you.

Hi Smart Commuters, we've missed you! Can you believe its almost 2022!? Soon enough we will be gearing up for the B2B Challenge, oh how time flies!

We hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season with family and friends, and taking some much deserved time off. And, since you have some downtime (hopefully!), what great timing to enjoy this short-and-sweet winter newsletter to update you on all things CommuteSMART!
Raffle Winners
In the e-blast we sent out following the 2021 B2B challenge, we shared that we would be raffling off some items for those who filled out our after-challenge survey. We would like to congratulate the following winners:
Machaela Wiggin 
Sue Brayman
UNH Diamond Library
Scott Hughes
Oak Point Associates
We will be reaching out to the winners in the coming weeks to coordinate prizes!
Where is Betti the Yeti?
CommuteSMARTSeacoast would normally be gearing up to launch Conquer the Cold on Jan. 1! Conquer the Cold is our winter commuter initiative that challenges individuals to walk, bike, and take the bus during the winter months. However, due to technical difficulties with our trip logging site, we have to postpone the challenge. We will be updating you in the coming weeks, but the plan for now is to begin Conquer the Cold in February instead! 

From the [Video] Vault

Here are some great videos of past winter warriors who bike, walk and take the bus (go, Betti!) to work!
Alana Jeralds: Smart Commuter
Alana walks to work because, "It gives me a push to get outdoors. Sometimes when you walk you see things you wouldn't otherwise."

Earn prizes and find ride-matches year round with the NEW CommuteSmart NH Mobile App!
Our statewide counterpart, CommuteSmart NH launched its new mobile app in mid-October. This new platform, not-only incentivizes smart commuting year-round, but also takes the place of NHDOT's previous platform, TripSpark, in providing rideshare matching services. Run by a company called Agile Mile, this platform was secured by Central NH RPC with the support from the NHDOT and the NH Department of Energy. 

Users can make an account on their smart phone after downloading the android or apple app. They can then log their daily smart commutes and earn points to trade in for gift card raffles, or coupons to local and chain restaurants and attractions - it's that simple. Get earning now!
