With a large population travelling to and from campus every day, enabling a variety of transportation options is critical for reducing environmental impacts and creating an inclusive and sustainable campus community. Over the past few months, the campus has seen some exciting developments related to public transit and cycling.
We will be joined by Kevan Marshall, Principal Planner, Transportation and Demand Management, from the Region of Waterloo to share information and updates on:
- ION launch and GRT service improvements
- UW station features
- Cycling updates, including the regional bikeshare program and infrastructure improvements
- TravelWise program and corporate transit passes
Following the presentation, attendees are invited to join us for a walk to the ION platform by the Davis Centre (DC) for a demonstration.
Please feel free to bring your own lunch. Coffee and tea will be provided. We hope to see you there!
FUN FACT: The University of Waterloo has set a goal of increasing sustainable commuting to 90% by 2025. Read more in the Environmental Sustainability Strategy (2017).
