Students, faculty and staff from CSU Monterey Bay beat the competition to win their division in the annual Rideshare Month event sponsored by the Association of Monterey Bay Area Governments.
The CSUMB community bested other campuses in Monterey, Santa Cruz and San Benito counties to take top honors in the College Challenge division and earn $500.

The 70 Otters who participated in the month-long contest traveled 21,048 miles without driving alone – meaning they walked, biked, shuttled, bussed, carpooled and skated.

Competition was held in categories for employers, non-profits, colleges and individuals.
