Why Leave Your Car at Home?
Liberate yourself from traffic jams. Leave your car at home and avoid getting stuck in traffic. Hop on a bike, take public transit, or carpool with friends for a day. You can even plug in some headphones and walk to work or school. Try it once a week, even when it’s cold out. You might be surprised at how enjoyable it is.
Sitting in traffic costs you time, money, and causes harmful health impacts from stress and pollution. But commuting doesn’t have to be a nightmare. By testing out new ways to get around, you’ll feel better, save money on gas and parking, and reduce carbon emissions.
With Ontario investing in safer and more convenient cycling networks, new public transit, and other alternatives, it’s easier than ever to make the choice to leave your car at home for a day.
