Peterborough, ON – September is Transit Month in Ontario and Commute Ontario is challenging people across the province to try transit.

There are more reasons than ever to take Peterborough Transit, including increasing your personal fitness, reducing emissions, and avoiding parking fees.

Take the Transit Month Ontario pledge to ride transit in September for a chance to win a $500 Apple Gift Card.

“Try different ways of moving through our city to make it easier to get around at times when you cannot, or would rather not, drive a car,” says Susan Sauvé, Transportation Demand Management Planner for the City of Peterborough.

“Our services are designed to be as convenient as possible. Time spent on the bus means time for you to do work, text, talk or just relax and let us get you where you need to go,” says Laurie Stratton, Peterborough’s new Manager of Transit Operations.

 If you need help planning your trip, contact us at 705-745-0525 or find more transit information online.

Commute Ontario is also providing materials to help you promote Transit Month in your community, school or workplace, including posters, digital media files, and more. Use the hashtag #TransitMonthON to share your transit experiences through your favourite social media channels.

For a presentation on Peterborough Transit at your school, club or workplace, contact Susan Sauvé, Transportation Demand Management Planner at 705-742-7777 ext. 1485.
