Commuter Challenge starts Sunday in Saint John and across Canada


The Commuter Challenge starts this Sunday and runs until Saturday, June 11. Have you registered a team?

This National Environment Week, take the Commuter Challenge. Change the way you get to work. June 5 to 11, the City of Saint John is sponsoring the Commuter Cup. Get your co-workers or your community together and register at saintjohn.ca/commuterchallenge to win!

On Tuesday morning, bring your commuter coffee cup to City Hall. Coffee, courtesy of Starbucks Brunswick Square, will be served by Mayor Ivan Court, Councillor Chris Titus and members of the City’s Employee Sustainability Team between 8 and 9 a.m.

One of the many ways we can help make the morning and evening commute better for everyone is to encourage alternative modes of transportation – particularly active transportation and transit. These alternative ways of commuting also reduce green house gases and reduce the wear and tear on infrastructure in our region. Rather than vehicles with a single-occupant traveling the streets, people are traveling in mass transit or under their own power. Even carpooling makes a difference.

The City of Saint John’s Employee Sustainability Team is on board with the challenge, and is coordinating a competition between City departments. For more information, please contact program co-ordinators Jody Kliffer and Leah Robichaud at 632-6846, or email saintjohn.ca.

Feet, wheels or bus – what moves you?
