Carpooling

Carpool Zone is a free, easy, and non-commital online ride-matching service provided by Smart Commute. It rewards users for their eco-friendly efforts and tracks greenhouse gases and money saved by carpooling.

Simply go to Dillon’s Carpool Zone, enter your work hours, commute route and carpool preferences and wait to be matched up with other carpoolers! Only information pertaining to prospective matches (nickname and email) will be shared with potential carpool partners.

Already carpool? Take advantage of HOV lanes and provincial carpool parking lots as meeting locations.

Dillon also has a hybrid car that can be used for business purposes.

Active Commuting

If you live within 10 kilometers of work, active commuting may work for you!

Did you know that the average person can walk 1km in 10 minutes and can bike 1km in less than 5 minutes? Walking/running is one of the best ways to commute. It’s cost-free, emits zero GHG pollutants into the air and promotes physical health.

Dillon provides an office bike that is available for all employees to use for errands, lunch, exercise, etc.

If you’re considering using your bike as part of your commute, why not “Rack it and Rocket” with the TTC? This service is currently available to cyclists who ride their bike on nearby 24 Victoria Park and 85 Sheppard Ave East TTC bus routes. Bikes are stored at the front end of the bus. View a demonstration on TTC bike racks here.

If needed, improve your fitness by doing short evening rides to start, or try riding part of the way to work and taking public transit the rest of the way. Take a cycling course such as CAN-Bike (www.canbike.net), and read the Highway Traffic Act for information on cycling rights at www.e-laws.gov.on.ca.

Active commuting doesn’t mean you are limited to staying at work during your breaks. Try walking, biking, or taking transit to local stores during your break. Running your errands on lunch also means that you can go straight home after work.
