An update from our partners at SustainMobility
As the concerns around COVID-19 evolve quickly in Canada and around the world, the health, safety, and well-being of our employees, clients and customers are a top priority and we are closely following the lead of the Ontario Public Health authorities.
In light of safety precautions and social distancing recommendations, SustainMobility recommends that employees suspend all carpooling activity effective immediately. Carpooling activity may resume at such a time as deemed appropriate by the Ontario Public Health authorities.
SustainMobility will also be temporarily suspending its Carpool Ontario website and monthly Rewards Program until further notice. In addition, a COVID-19 notice has been posted on our Carpool Parking Management Program.
To get through this pandemic, we need to come together, be kind and caring, and continue doing our part to keep each other safe and healthy. Thank you for your continued patience and support as we all work through this unprecedented situation together.
Carpool Ontario is a program available to all Peterborough employees and workplaces for no cost. Carpool Ontario helps you to find someone to carpool with. You can sign up as an individual and your workplace can register to be part of the program too. If your workplace registers, then you can get other benefits such as the Guaranteed Ride Home program and the ability to restrict your search for carpool partners to within your own workplace. In Peterborough, the City of Peterborough, Trent University and Peterborough Public Health are registered workplaces.
Carpool Ontario and the Guaranteed Ride Home program are part of the Commute Ontario program which is run by SustainMobility, a non-profit organization in Mississauga. These programs are provided free of charge thanks to the generous support of the Ontario Trillium Foundation.
