MATBUS announces launch of 2017 iGoEco Challenge 

Level up your transportation options by taking part in the 2017 iGoEco Challenge!  iGoEco encourages area residents to replace solo car trips with eco-friendly transportation – walking, biking, carpooling, rollerblading or riding MATBUS!  The official promotion runs March 27 through April 30, but residents are encouraged to take part in pre-registration now. 

MATBUS wants to reward those who make the commitment to “go eco” during the iGoEco Challenge. Anyone who registers for the Challenge before March 27 is in the running to win a premium bicycle from Great Northern Bicycle Company. Also, registrants can pick up a welcome gift of a colorful sling bag just for signing up (while supplies last). 

Participants who complete the iGoEco Challenge each week will be eligible to win one of the prizes valued $100-$400 each, including Beats Powerbeats Wireless Earphones, Amazon Echos, and a Nintendo Switch. If participants complete all five weekly challenges, they will be eligible to win the grand prize of a Samsung 55" Curved UltraHD Smart TV and UHD Blu-Ray Player, donated by Gate City Bank! 

Metro residents can sign up for the iGoEco Challenge by visiting, where they can quickly enter their information and learn all about iGoEco.  This is also where they will log eco-friendly trips each week. Download the MATBUS app to sign up, log trips, and plan trips on MATBUS. The app is available on Google Play and the Apple Store.

The iGoEco Challenge, sponsored by MATBUS, is a collaborative partnership with the Cities of Fargo and Moorhead, the Minnesota Department of Transportation, BIG 98.7, BOB 95, 96.9 Hits and Q 105.1.
