Just getting to work can be, well, work. Even though the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA) has been described as one of the best places to live in the country, it is still one of the most congested! The average round-trip commute time is 82 minutes, longer than almost any other region in North America. Commuters are evidently frustrated and stressed out by this reality.
But what if there was a way to refresh your A to B? Smart Commute Week, running from September 22 to 28, encourages you to step out of your normal routine and try a different mode of transportation, which could be a small step in the right direction.
There are a variety of options available in the GTHA, including: walking, taking transit, carpooling, biking, teleworking or making flexible work arrangements. Smart Commute has just released a new tool to help you match your trips with others, explore different options and track the impact of your choices. Check it out on your mobile device while you’re on the move!
Experience the many benefits of a refreshed commute by participating in Smart Commute Week and trying out the new online tool.
Don’t forget to follow @smartcommute and use the hashtag #smartcommute to share how you are refreshing your A to B.
