Smart Commute Mississauga is dedicated to improving sustainable transportation options for commuters in the City of Mississauga.
Smart Commute Mississauga will advocate, on behalf of our workplaces and clients, for Transit improvements for their employees. We will present data gathered through employee surveys and site assessments to advocate for optimal transit services to the demands of your employees.
Discounted Transit Passes
Smart Commute is currently gathering data on employee monthly pass discount programs across the GTA and will use this information to advocate for similar programs in Mississauga. Discounted transit passes are typically sold through an employer directly to their employees.
University of Toronto Universal Bus Pass
Smart Commute Mississauga successfully supported a universal bus pass (UPass) for UTM students. In a student referendum in February of 2007, students overwhelmingly agreed to pay an additional $89 in student fees in exchange for unlimited travel on Mississauga Transit busses during the 2007 / 2008 academic year.
Share the Road with Cyclists
Smart Commute Mississauga has teamed-up with the Mississauga Cycling Advisory Committee (MCAC) in a pubic awareness campaign to encourage drivers to Share The Road with cyclists. Throughout the summer of 2007, the Share The Road poster will be affixed to the back of city busses.
