How It Works

Register as a neighbourhood or school 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, and mobility aids. Whether you’re heading to the store, park, school or work, log your kilometers (Km) for your neighbourhood or school.


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


CONGRATULATIONS to Christ the King Elementary School and Takhini/Yukon University neighbourhood for winning the challenge!


Honourable mentions include École Whitehorse Elementary, Golden Horn Elementary, and Grey Mountain Primary schools, and Hillcrest, Copper Ridge, and Raven’s Ridge/Eagles’ Eye neighbourhoods. Your energy put into active transporation is outstanding!
