My Smart Commute

Your guide to finding a safe, climate-friendly commute that meets your needs

smart com•mute

/smärt kəˈmyo͞ot/

A smart commute is a trip that is typically shared with others, sustainable (generates minimal greenhouse gas emissions), and/or active. Taking transit or carpooling, for example, rather than driving alone to work makes commuting more affordable and helps to reduce the emissions that contribute to climate change. Active modes, such as walking and cycling, have additional benefits – they support mental and physical wellbeing.

The My Smart Commute Challenge is Now Closed

The City of Toronto’s Smart Commute team is challenging all Toronto residents to adopt a smart commute in 2022!

To support you, we have created a series of  newsletters, each one focusing on a different sustainable commute mode: transit, carpooling, walking, cycling, driving less often – and even remote work!

Interested in learning more about any of these options? Sign up, below! You’ll receive a total of three newsletters, one per week over three weeks, for each mode you select plus a follow up survey so you can share your feedback with us.

Complete the survey to be entered into a monthly draw for a chance to win one of three $50 gift cards for Mountain Equipment Company (MEC), Canadian Tire or The Bay! And don’t forget to share details of the tips you utilised with #MySmartCommute on Twitter! See contest rules here.
