Rethink your ride in 2019!

Are you up for the Commuter Challenge?

Workplaces and individuals across the country are being challenged to use alternatives to driving alone for at least one day of the Commuter Challenge week (June 2-8, 2019).

By walking, cycling, taking transit or ride sharing, you can reduce your impact on the environment and achieve the recommended 150 minutes of physical activity per week.  This is the time to try something new or just get colleagues to join in on the fun!

The Commuter Challenge is a national friendly competition between workplaces, cities and provinces. To participate, you will need to register at Create an account for your workplace and then get co-workers to setup personal accounts. You can also register as an individual/unaffiliated.

During the week, people track their distances travelled and help put Thunder Bay on the map.

Thunder Bay is an active and vibrant city and in 2018 our city ranked #1 in the province for communities in the 100,000 people range and #2 in the province for all cities. We even beat Toronto!

Need a Reason to Participate?

  • Win great prizes! Prizes will be awarded for logging even one commute!
  • Get your exercise! Accumulate the recommended 150 minutes of physical activity per week while you travel actively and reap the health benefits. Cyclist commuters take half as many sick days as car commuters.
  • Be chauffeured! Take the bus and forget the stress of dealing with traffic or road rage while you read your book or relax.
  • Overcome commuter zombification! A little change in the commuting routine will sharpen your senses and make you feel more energized.
  • Fight the climate chaos! Transportation accounts for 35% of Thunder Bay’s greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Save tones of money! Driving 18,000 km per year costs an average of $8,441 (2)And health care costs of transportation emissions will cost Canadians between $11 billion to $38 billion between 1997 and 2020 (3).
  • Have fun and boost morale at work!
