Commuter Challenge

Ottawa’s Commuter Challenge is a week long event that encourages people of legal driving age (16+) to reduce air pollution by using active or sustainable transportation to get to and from work or school. People are asked to walk, cycle, take the bus, telework, carpool, or a combination of those, instead of driving alone.

Canoe Commute 1999I organized the 1999 and 2000 National Capital campaigns. We competed against Calgary and we whupped them both times! Of course, when you have such dedicated citizens who canoed the Ottawa River to their job at a water filtration plant, it’s really not all that surprising!
