Join the Mohawk Clean Air Commute team

Clean Air Commute LogoThe Sustainability Office wants you to join our team for the 2013 Clean Air Commute, June 17-23. Challenge yourself to commute to campus in a clean and sustainable way for one week to see the impact you can make! We encourage you to try walking, cycling, public transit, carpooling, telecommuting- or even giving your car a tune-up so it runs more efficiently.

Register online and track your commute to campus during the week on the Commuter Log to see your impact.

Participants will have a chance to win great prizes including:

  • An iPad mini;

  • One of two AMEGO e-bikes and scooters;

  • A one-week cycling holiday with The Great Waterfront Trail Adventure Tour: Lake Erie Edition;

  • A pair of tickets to a Toronto Blue Jays game with seating at dugout level;

  • Four, one-year CAA memberships;

  • 32GB Toshiba Tablet;

  • Raleigh Revolution Mountain Bike;

  • and, many more exciting prizes!
