Smart Commute Hamilton hosts several successful events every year.

Smart Commute Month

Driver, cyclist, GO Train rider – however you get to work, we want to know about it!

Every September, Smart Commute Hamilton conducts a survey to learn more about your travel choices. Complete the survey for a chance to win some awesome prizes.

Our goal is to provide you with better and greener options for getting to work. The more we know about how people are moving around in Hamilton, the more effective our commute options can be. We want to get a full picture of how people are getting around, so if you’re a driver, it’s ok, you can tell us.

During Smart Commute Month, Smart Commute will hold a host of campaigns, survey, contests and challenges to engage you the public to explore and share your transportation options.

Bike Day/Bike Month

Bike Day is an annual, one-day kick-off event to Bike Month and is aimed at promoting cycling as a viable option for all types of travel. It is the official kickoff to Bike Month across the GTHA.

While we cannot formally gather this year, we encourage folks to connect… digitally! Following current public health guidelines, please join the cycling community by going for a bike ride with your household and explore Hamilton’s (growing) cycling infrastructure. Share your cycling adventures online and participate in the activities

Kick-off with Bike Day on May 31, 2021. Commit to riding on Bike Day and/or during Bike Month to be entered to win 1 of 3 prize packs, which include a $100 VISA gift card and a 2021 Bike Month t-shirt. To register, see upcoming events and more information, visit
