Take part in the Commute-Another-Way Challenge!

Ring the changes on Thursday, 4 June by commuting another way! CERN has signed up for the 5th “challenge mobilité Rhône-Alpes”, the aim of which is to encourage people to use modes of transport other than their car to get to work. Are you up for the challenge?


Join in the challenge! Sign up using the dedicated CERN form.

"Commute another way!" is an initiative launched by the Rhône-Alpes regional authorities and the French environment agency ADEME (l’Agence de l’environnement et de la maîtrise de l’énergie française) to promote alternative ways of travelling to work than the car (excluding carpooling), in private and public-sector organisations across the region.

We love this idea and CERN has been signed up to a similar scheme - Bike to Work - for several years. That’s why we’ve decided that CERN should join the Commute-Another-Way Challenge, in partnership with the Communauté de Communes du Pays de Gex.

The concept is simple -  on Thursday 4 June come to work using a mode of transport other than a car with a single occupant. Possible options include walking, cycling, carpooling, or public transport. Use the dedicated CERN formto let us know which mode(s) of transport you choose and how many kilometres you travel. The data collected will be passed on to the Challenge organisers at the Rhône-Alpes regional council, who will then name a winner, i.e. the organisation with the largest proportion of participants.

Of course the challenge is open to anyone working on the CERN site, whatever their status. So talk about it with your colleagues, propose carpooling, check out bus and tram timetables or just get on your bike!

* The official Challenge form doesn’t allow people who are not resident in France to enter, which is why we have made available a dedicated CERN formNote that on this same site, you can also submit and view offers to carpool. CERN will take care of sending the data to the Challenge organisers.
