Smart Commute

Solving your commute challenges

Do you need help with a specific transportation challenge? Or do you want to explore how to make your organization more sustainable? Joining the Smart Commute program gives you access to ongoing support to address issues such as:

  • Lack of parking spots

  • Congestion around your office

  • Long commutes

  • Talent acquisition and retention

Smart Commute is an annual, customizable program

The Smart Commute program is customizable to meet the needs of your organization.

Smart Commute clients receive customized ongoing support that changes as your needs change. We proudly deliver the Smart Commute program in north Toronto and Vaughan on behalf of City of Toronto and York Region, joining other organizations who deliver the program across the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area.

Your organization's Smart Commute program may include any of the following:

Carpooling Tool

A dedicated online network for your workplace will make it easy for employees to find colleagues looking to share rides to work and measure the impact of their travel choices.

Emergency Ride Home

In the event of an emergency, employees who carpool, take transit, cycle or walk to work can travel home quickly on us (up to $75).

Annual Events and Campaigns

We offer a variety of campaigns throughout the year promoting sustainable transportation such as Bike to Work Day and Bike Month.

Clinics and Workshops

Hands-on workshops and informative events on bike safety, how to use PRESTO, finding a carpool partner, trip planning, and more can ease the transition to a better commute.
