So what is GoManitoba?
If you are reading this, you might be a new or potential user of GoManitoba and are wondering just how to go about making this site work for you. Welcome!
GoManitoba is a province-wide commuting tool bringing the RideAmigos technology to our prairie province. This technology allows citizens from across Manitoba to connect with like-minded people to share commutes, save money, time and relieve congestion.
To get started, you need to register into the system. Simply click the Register button on the top, right-hand side of your screen.
From here, input your personal contact details. If you have a work email address, we recommend using that email as your primary contact, so the system can let you know if matches are coworkers or go to school at the same place as you.
Create Trip Profiles for the commutes you regularly make. We all have routine trips, be they to work, school, or regular errands. GoManitoba will use this data to find commute matches for you. Create profiles for any recurring trips you make, whether it’s to your workplace, to school, to a weekly meeting, or different shifts.
On the right-hand side of the page, you will see the box that says Find Commute Options. As more and more users join the system, you will see people who match with you for carpooling, biking or taking transit. Simply click on these matches to find out more about them, and if you are looking for a carpool partner, or maybe a transit or cycling mentor, you can choose to email them.
Now you are ready to log your commutes, which will calculate calories burned, emission reductions and money saved!
And remember, the more people join the website, the better all of the functions will work. So help us spread the word about GoManitoba to your friends, coworkers and family!
