Watch this webinar recording to learn how your city or community can manage traffic congestion, reduce greenhouse gas emissions from vehicles and control costs of bussing students to school. Be inspired by the City of Kingston, ON, that addressed these challenges with a unique award-winning program which provides free transit passes to all high school students – along with on-bus orientation to teach students how to ride the bus and the benefits of public transit.

You will discover new best practices, helpful and accessible resources, including our free guidebook Engaging students to increase public transit ridership and other tools that could help you to undertake a similar initiative in your community.

Speakers:

  • Daniel Hendry, Sustainable Initiatives Coordinator, Limestone District School Board
  • Jeremy DaCosta, Director, Transit and Fleet Services, Kingston Transit, City of Kingston
