Green Office Program

Welcome to the Transportation Module of UWinnipeg's Green Office Program!

Please use the tips and resources below to green your commuting habits. If you have any questions or need assistance, please don't hesitate to get in touch with the Campus Sustainability Office.

  • I participate in the Commuter Challenge hosted by the Green Action Centre in the spring (June 1-7th, 2014).
  • I reduce the impact of my transportation behaviour by taking the bus, cycling, carpooling and using alternate forms of active transportation to get to and from work.
  • When I am driving I respect cyclists by giving them at least 1 meter to ride in.
  • I utilize the university's Peg City Car Co-op car to get to off-campus meetings when it is not practical to walk or bus to them.
  • When possible, I avoid business travel by using Cisco TelePresence rooms or other teleconferencing technology.
  • I use the Wellness/Sustainability Benefit for partial reimbursement of my sustainable and wellness choices- such as a membership at the Duckworth Centre, bus tickets and passes, CFL lightbulbs, etc.
  • I reach out to my community and get engaged in transportation issues. 
  • I track the impact of my daily commute by participating in the Commuter Challenge all year round.
