Guelph Takes 3rd Place in National Commuter Challenge

Two hundred and five people in Guelph saved a total of roughly $2,652 by using carpools, transit, cycling or walking to work during Environment Week May 30 to June 5.

Commuter Challenge participants in Guelph travelled 14,889 kilometres using more sustainable transportation methods, and prevented 5,274 kilograms of carbon emissions by choosing not to drive to work alone during the event.

Once again, Guelph commuters have shown their commitment to creating a more sustainable community by choosing greener ways to get around the city, including Guelph Transits

Compared to cities of the similar size across Canada, Guelph came in third place with 0.18 per cent participation.

Kelowna, British Columbia won the Challenge with 0.57 per cent participation and Regina, Saskatchewan took second place and with 0.27 percent.
