Every September, Smart Commute Hamilton gathers information on how people commute. This year, in addition to completing the questionnaire, get more chances to win awesome prizes by using the Smart Commute Tool.
With the Smart Commute Tool you can find fellow carpoolers, match you up with a bike buddy, and keep track of your financial savings in a personalized dashboard.
Our goal is to provide you with better and greener options for getting to work. The more we know about how people are moving around in Hamilton, the more effective our commute options can be.
