As one of the largest employers in the City, the City of Hamilton has been involved with Smart Commute since 2009 and played a key role in the success of the program. Typically with each engaged workplace, there are “champions” who assist with the promotion of annual events, and projects such as:

  • Carpool Week;HSR bus and Sobi bike station on James St North
  • Bike to Work Day and Bike Month;
  • Smart Commute Month;
  • Pilot projects such as the Commuter Rewards Program;
  • Secure bike parking;
  • Customized travel plans; and
  • Lots more!

Transportation Planning Services is seeking to develop an internal City of Hamilton advisory committee for to assist in the delivery of the Smart Commute program for City employees. We are looking for employees from various departments that are interested in sustainable transportation.

The Committee would meet quarterly to review upcoming promotions and programs and discuss how the program can improve with each department.

Throughout the year we will provide committee members with promotional materials for their respective departments and hope that committee members can participate in scheduled events.
