Enbridge is one of the fastest growing natural gas distribution companies in North America, and is concerned with both the wellness of its employees and the environmental impact of its operations.
Knowing that workers in the Greater Toronto Area face the longest average daily commute in Canada, Enbridge is working to minimize the stress and financial costs of commuting. As a result, the company is retaining valued employees, freeing parking spaces for other uses and reducing local air pollution.
Smart Commute’s ride matching website, Carpool Zone, can help you find a carpool partner!
Carpool Zone is free, easy and non-commital. Register on the Enbridge's Carpool Zone and enter a starting address, along with your weekly schedule and travel preferences. View potential matches and send invitations through the website. After agreeing to share a ride, your carpool will be formed and you can start enjoying the benefits of smart commuting. Best of all, Carpool Zone rewards users for their eco-friendly efforts and tracks greenhouse gases and money saved by carpooling.

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.
If you're considering using your bike as part of your commute, why not “Rack it and Rocket” with the TTC? Bikes are stored at the front end of the bus. View a demonstration 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.
