Smart Commute Halton encourages active and sustainable transportation by offering services and tools designed to make commuting easier for the employees of local organizations. It is led by Halton Region and, along with other Smart Commutes around the GTHA, works in partnership with Metrolinx (an agency of the Government of Ontario).
Smart Commute is a program of Metrolinx and the municipalities in the GTHA whose goal is to ease gridlock, improve air quality and reduce greenhouse gas emissions while making commuting less expensive and more enjoyable, helping support the objectives in Metrolinx’s regional transportation plan, The Big Move. To date, 323 employers with 726,477 employees have signed on to the program across 13 Smart Commute offices and are designated as Smart Commute workplaces.
