“Commute Ontario made it simpler for our community to access sustainable transportation programs. For example, the Carpool Ontario ride-matching tool makes it easy for faculty, staff, and students to find carpool partners–an otherwise difficult process in a large institution. Both our campuses in Thunder Bay and Orillia are located in smaller communities where transit options are limited. Since the majority of people are not taking the bus or cycling to work, the Emergency Rise Home Program is a great way to incentivize our staff and faculty to take the next best option and carpool instead.”

– Ledah McKellar, Sustainability Coordinator, Lakehead University

“I love the tagline for the program ‘make commute time your time’. It says it all. When I walk and bike, that is outdoor time for me. When I carpool or take transit, that is time for me to catch up with friends or the news. We are gearing up for an enthusiastic uptake of these programs by workplaces and community members in Peterborough.” 

— Susan Sauvé
Transportation Demand Management Planner, City of Peterborough

“Joining SustainMobility’s Commute Ontario program is a huge opportunity for the City of Thunder Bay. It complements programs that we currently partake in such as the Commuter Challenge and Safe Cycling Thunder Bay, but takes it to a new level,” explains Adam Krupper, Mobility Coordinator – City of Thunder Bay. “The program’s online employer platform will help us meaningfully engage with employees year-round and hopefully see bigger shifts in commuting habits.”

Many of our students live outside the area that the City of Orillia bus services. This carpool matching tool will provide an option for students to travel to campus, and at the same time save money and do their part in improving the environment. I have already registered as a driver, and I can say that the process was easy to complete in just a few minutes.”

Student Life Manager, Georgian College, Orillia Campus
