Commuter Challenge…

  • Is a week-long event during Canadian Environment Week (June 5 – 11, 2011)
  • 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 nationally hosted by Sustainable Alberta Association
  • Is locally hosted by City Coordinators who support workplaces

How it Works

  • You register your workplace and/or yourself before the Commuter Challenge week (starting in March 2011)
  • 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 here starting June 5, 2011
  • Registration and logging will be accepted until June 15, 2011
  • While logging see your impacts adding up
  • 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
  • To increase the fun you can also encourage your coworkers to take the challenge
