Watch the video to understand the basic process. Thousands of BC citizens are urging the BC Government to expedite the roll-out of this proven program. The “powers that be” need to hear that you are expecting prompt action:

  1. a pilot project involving 3 adjacent school districts this summer
  2. other pilots with a bank and a credit union this summer
  3. region-wide roll-out beginning in late 2018 /early 2019.

It is possible to cut commuting traffic by over 5% within 18 months. Imagine how life will be improved for everyone when so much needless commuting is eliminated.

The “Closer Commutes” strategy is straightforward for major employers to implement – it actually saves the employer money on HR expenses and boosts productivity. WorkSafeBC can mandate this practice for all large employers – WorkSafe CEO Diana Miles can ask Labour Minister Harry Bains to champion a new regulation through Cabinet.

If you haven’t already, please sign the petition and share it. Thanks!

Closer commutes are good for business, the community and the environment.
