Commuter Challenge and How It Works

Commuter Challenge:

  • is run by a team of dedicated volunteers and periodic funding that all contributes to the further development of the website and the tracking tool.  If you think that you can help us in any way please contact us by email or to donate donate here.

Commuter Challenge:

  • is a week-long event during Canadian Environment Week (June 17, 2014)
  • is a friendly competition between Canadian cities and workplaces
  • encourages Canadians to leave their cars at home
  • rewards walking, cycling, carpooling/ride-sharing, taking transit and telecommuting
  • celebrates active and sustainable transportation
  • is locally hosted by City Coordinators who support workplaces

How it works

  • You register your workplace and/or yourself before the Commuter Challenge week (June 1-7, 2014)
  • You walk, cycle, carpool, take transit or telecommute during the event week
  • To be included in the final results you need to make at least one sustainable commute during Commuter Challenge week; of course you can commute sustainably every day :-)
  • You log your commute by first signing-in starting June 1, 2014
  • Registration and logging will be accepted until Wednesday, June 11, 2014
  • On your log page, you will see your impacts adding up
  • As a workplace coordinator, you will see all of your workplace results and impacts.
  • Tracked impacts are emission reduction, calorie consumption, distance and fuel cost savings
  • Results are updated daily so you can see which workplaces and cities have the highest percentage of healthy commuters
