Getting Around

Travel is part of our daily life – to the grocery store, library, a friend’s house or the movie theatre. You need to get there, but you don’t want to sit and stew in traffic, or burn a lot of gas and money in the process. Find an option that fits your schedule and budget.

Walking and cycling

Pull on your comfy running shoes or tune up your bike to discover how easy, fun and fast it can be to get to work on foot or by bike.

Transit

Taking the bus is an inexpensive and easy way to get around. If you haven’t tried it in a while, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by all the new features. Try transit!

Carpooling

Share a ride sometimes or every day. Drive always, sometimes or never. Whatever your reasons, carpooling can work for you.

Telecommuting

Put in a full day of work without even leaving the house. You can save yourself the time and stress of the daily commute by working from home.

Fuel efficient driving

Reduce your fuel consumption, save money at the pump, and at the same time reduce CO2 emissions. Learn more about ecoDriving!
