Commuter Challenge 2009

Commuter Challenge is a national program that encourages Canadians to walk, cycle, take transit, carpool (ride share) or tele-work instead of driving alone to work. The Challenge supports workplaces as they encourage their employees to leave their cars at home for their personal health, the health of their communities and the health of the environment. Individual Canadians can participate too.

The program is based on a friendly competition between workplaces and communities across Canada to see which has the highest percentage participation rates during the week. Read more about Commuter Challenge 2009
