Ready …. Set … GOtober!
Fall has returned to our prairie province, and now is the perfect time to start some new transportation habits to benefit your health, your finance and our environment.
Did you know:
- A lack of exercise is responsible for twice as many deaths as obesity
- The average Canadian spends $8,600 to $13,000 a year to own a vehicle
- The #1 cause of GHG emissions in Manitoba is transportation. We used to think of pollution coming from factories, but today, it comes from tailpipes.
This October, we want YOU to try some new commuting methods with the free, province-wide GoManitoba tool! Registration is free, and by setting up your regular commutes, you can find carpool partners as well as transit, biking and walking routes. To learn more about GoManitoba, see our User Guide and Safety Guide.
Why not try carpooling once or twice a week? Are you interested in biking for one of your trips, but nervous to try? GoManitoba has many bike and transit mentors who want to ensure you have a great experience. Remember, it’s not all or nothing. You can improve your health, your finances and the environment by choosing healthy, sustainable commuting just a few times a week!
And of course, YOU CAN WIN PRIZES!
Get in the GOtober groove to win some sweet treats. With GoManitoba, you earn points for every action on the site. Registering, reaching out to those you match with, tracking your travels. The more you use the tool, the more points you earn, which increases your chance to win!
Help us spread the word about GoManitoba and GOtober on social media! We’ll enter everyone who shares their commuting stories and encourages their followers to try healthy, sustainable commuting. Use the hashtags #GoToberMB and #GoManitoba from September 15th to October 31st to be entered to win additional prizes.
