Commuter Challenge in the Comox Valley, June 4-10, 2017 Results
Thank you to all the workplaces, individuals and sponsors that made the effort to participate in the Commuter Challenge from June 4-10. It’s a friendly competition between Canadian cities and workplaces to track trips taken to work by transit, cycling, walking, carpooling or telecommuting.
The Comox Valley achieved the 5th highest participation rate in British Columbia with 95 organizations involved and 125 active participants. Together, they travelled 4551 km, saving 825 kg of CO2 from being released into the atmosphere and burning nearly 90,000 calories. Not bad for the first year. Learn more here.
