2022 Cards Commuter ChallengeAugust 29 - September 30, 2022. University-wide
UofL wants you to save money, burn calories, put an end to pollution, and win prizes…all by simply choosing to get to campus in a new way! Record your trips on Cardinal Directions throughout the Cards Commuter Challenge (August 29 - September 30) and each week you'll have the chance to win one of the $50 weekly prizes or the $250 Grand Prize! One student and one faculty/staff member will win each week! Any trip by means other than driving alone increases your chances of winning!

Step 1: Join the Challenge online!

Step 2: Challenge yourself (and your friends!) to get to campus differently!
Try these life-affirming alternatives to the expense, road-rage, pollution, and parking hassles of driving alone:

  • BUS: Ride any TARC Airport RouteTARC route free with UofL ID (just swipe your card as you board - any time, anywhere).
  • CARDpool: Organize your own carpool with friends, family, colleagues, or classmates; or find rides & offer rides online through Cardinal Directions.
  • WALK, SKATE, or BIKE: Get your workout just by getting where you need to go under your own power! If you don't have your own bike, borrow one free from UofL Bikeshare or join LouVelo citywide bikeshare for just $15/mo with your @louisville.edu address (membership gets you unlimited trips of up to one hour without any additional charges). Be sure to also log your bike trips during Cycle September as an individual to be entered to win fabulous national prizes like a $1000 bicycle, $4000 dream vacation, or over 200 other prizes! And join Team UofL on Strava to log your rides and encourage/compete against your peers for the UofL Grand Prize. Simply log your trips by bicycle for fun, fitness, or transportation from September 1-30, 2022. Your miles and days cycled will qualify you for the grand prize of a $200 voucher to a local bike shop!LouVelo BAB Station
  • VANPOOL: Employees can get in on a vanpool, get your ride home guaranteed, or enter to win additional monthly prizes with Every Commute Counts.
  • SKIP THE COMMUTE: Work or study from home for maximum convenience, savings, and safety!

* NOTE: Though certainly better than driving, getting around via lazy, coal-powered electric scooters does not qualify for this Challenge. Skip the dirty electricity and use your muscles to qualify!
