The Transit Month Ontario campaign has now ended. We have received more than 900 pledges – Great Job Ontario!

Thank you to all of our clientspartners for supporting the campaign and to more than 900 individuals from 109 cities who pledged to take transit in the month of September.

Congratulations to Helen Cichon, from Windsor who won the $500 Apple gift card!

Transit Month Ontario is a FREE campaign that takes place in September to help increase transit ridership across Ontario.

To help promote the campaign, municipalities, workplaces and post-secondary institutions can access free downloadable electronic marketing collateral at the bottom of this page.

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using ‘Content here, content here’, making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for ‘lorem ipsum’ will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
