Get Yourself Ready
However you plan to commute sustainably, there are things you can do to get ready in advance.
Walking? Plan your route, download some podcasts, and make sure you have some comfortable shoes.
Cycling? Plan your route, get your bike tuned, and ensure you have safe bike parking at your destination. If you’re new to cycling, connect with a cycling mentor using GoManitoba.
Busing? Get familiar with the routes close to you, fill up your peggo card, and grab a good book. If you’re new to busing, connect with a busing mentor using GoManitoba.
Carpooling? Ask around your workplace or building to see if anyone lives close. If not, GoManitoba can help you connect with carpool partners near you!
Telecommuting? Ensure your workplace allows work to be done at home and prepare your at-home office.
