St. Lawrence College has introduced a new program with Commute Ontario (a province-wide program) for students, staff, and faculty on the Kingston, Brockville, and Cornwall campuses.

The program focuses on a variety of sustainable transportation modes including walking, cycling, carpooling, and taking transit.

All Commute Ontario programs and campaigns can be accessed through the St. Lawrence College Information Portal. Visit commuteontario.ca/sl and create your account during the month of February for a chance to win $500 towards your carpool group's gas purchases.

Faculty, staff and students can now enjoy free programs to help you commute smarter including:

Find your carpool partner with Carpool Ontario, a free ride-matching tool that connects with a network. Whether you are looking to drive a carpool or share a ride, Carpool Ontario allows the user to customize their search criteria.

SLC staff and faculty are eligible for the Emergency Ride Home (ERH) program. If you have an unforeseen emergency on any day you use a sustainable method to commute to work, you can request a reimbursement of up to $75 for your emergency transportation costs through the portal. Please note students are not eligible for the ERH Program.

The Active Switch online tool allows faculty, staff and students the opportunity to set goals, track and monitor progress. Record a variety of activities including walking, cycling and more. Tracking activity is flexible and can be entered in steps, distance, or time. The distance travelled is converted into greenhouse gas emissions saved! Log your active trips at activeswitch.ca/campus for a chance to win great monthly prizes.

Carpool Ontario and Active Switch faculty, staff and students are automatically entered into a monthly prize draw simply by keeping their accounts active.
