“There are many great reasons to bike, walk or take transit to school or work.” Explains Geoff Hendry, COO of Sustainable Kingston. “In addition to being one of the most impactful things you can do to address the climate crisis, you’ll save money and feel healthier.”


In 2022, Kingston Commuter Challenge’s 288 participants logged 152,039 KM of sustainable commuting. This avoided 8,929 kg of C02 emissions, saved 4,072 litres of fuel, and burned 673,682 calories.
