Each of them won a $500 travel voucher, compliments of VIA Rail Canada, just for logging their trips on the Smart Commute online tool.

September 21 – 27, 2015

During Smart Commute Week, use our online tool to explore your transportation options, match your trips with others and track the impact of your travel choices.

The more options you try and log using the tool, the more chances to win 1 of 4 VIA Rail vouchers, each worth $500.  Note: one entry per person per travel mode (transit, carpool, active – bike/walk and telework).

To enter the Smart Commute Week contest, log in or register an account on the Smart Commute tool during the Contest Period (Sept. 14 to 28) and log at least one trip using a travel mode other than “drive alone” (see the Addendum: 2015 Smart Commute Week Contest – Trip logging guidelines for assistance in categorizing your trip). Review the complete Contest Rules here.

Learn more about your travel options:

Take transit. Relax and let someone else handle the driving.

Carpooling (sharing the drive with one or more people) or vanpooling will save you money, time and energy. Find someone to share the ride with.

Hop on your Bike and ride to work or to the GO station – you can even take your bike with you on the bus.

Incorporate walking or running – a simple way to get some exercise into your daily routine.

Flexible work arrangements include compressed work weeks, earned days off, flex time, staggered work hours or reduced work hours.

Give up the trip altogether by Teleworking (working from home or another remote location).

Sustainable travel options such as a hybrid car, electric car or scooter are great, eco-friendly alternatives too.
