Clean Air Competition

Welcome to the 1st Annual Winter ULaw Clean Air Competition

February 1-28, 2015

Join your classmates and colleagues during February to reduce single occupancy vehicle trips and minimize winter air pollution which increases the risk of heart disease, lung cancer, and asthma attacks—especially in children, the elderly, and active adults. The inversion season is in full force, so now is a great time to consider your daily transportation choices. For those who already regularly ride UTA, carpool, bicycle, walk, or telecommute, be a role model and show others how your decisions save money and energy as well as reduce traffic congestion and most importantly, emissions.

Compete: February 1-28, 2015
