The Commuter Challenge is a Canada wide event to help promote green modes of transportation. The Challenge is pitting communities, cities and workplaces against each other. Individuals can also register for a chance to win prizes such as free transit for a year or a new bike! Participants can either bike, walk, paddle, skate, bus, carpool or telecommute to work or school.
