1. The Active Switch Program

Think twice about using the car with the Active Switch online tool by opting to use healthy and active travel options for daily trips.

The tool allows users to set goals, track active travel, monitor progress and converts the distance travelled to illustrate the amount of calories you have burned and greenhouse gas emissions you have saved. Plus, you will be entered to win great monthly prizes!

If you are an employee at a participating workplace, visit the Active Switch Workplace Program website.
If you are a faculty member, staff member, or student at a participating post-secondary institution, visit the Active Switch Campus Program website.

2. The CycleLoan Bike Fleet Program

CycleLoan-logoThe newest & coolest bike fleet program – CycleLoan! Created specifically for the workplace, the concept behind the CycleLoan Program is simple: provide employees with free access to bicycles during business hours to promote active modes of transportation at work.

The turnkey program is the brainchild of SustainMobility to address the growing demand to create a bicycle friendly culture in Peel Region. The program is sponsored by the Region of Peel and Gallant Bicycles.

Since its launch, the program has been a great success! Employees are using the CycleLoan bicycles for local business meetings, exercise, and recreation. Team up with SustainMobility to implement a low cost, low maintenance, single or multi-site CycleLoan Program for your employees.
