How It Works

Register as a neighbourhood or school team participant. Login to enter your distance travelled during Active Commute Week.

 

Log your distance travelled by walking, running, cycling (including e-bikes), skateboarding, rollerblading, scootering, mobility aids, and taking public transit. Whether you’re heading to the store, park, school or work, log your kilometers (Km) for your neighbourhood or school team.

 

Track your daily Km and enter your daily stats. The live tracker will show how your school or neighbourhood team is doing in real time! Also track the kilograms (Kg) of greenhouse gas (carbon dioxide equivalent) (GHG) you avoided from entering the atmosphere.

Prizes

The grand prize for the winning school team is a city-catered lunch and for the winning neighbourhood team is a city-catered BBQ meal. There are also honourable mention prizes.
