Sustainable Waterloo Region is proud to partner with the Region of Waterloo to run TravelWise–a commuting support network for local employers. This program allows organizations across Waterloo Region to offer innovative and sustainable transportation options to their employees in order to reduce the number of single-occupancy vehicles traveling on our roads. By promoting sustainable transportation choices like walking, cycling, taking public transit, or carpooling, TravelWise eases parking concerns, relieves traffic congestion, reduces greenhouse gas emissions, promotes healthy lifestyles, and improves quality of life.
TravelWise helps member organizations work through four milestones to expand commuting options for staff. We provide reporting, promotions, best practice, and recognition support for members, as well as key services that help employees, such as:
Transportation accounts for about 40% of emissions in Waterloo Region. It also costs commuters and businesses a lot of money for gas and parking. To see how TravelWise members are already seeing the benefits, check out this infographic on how employees get to and from work.
