The RMOW is playing match-maker this month, at least on the roads.
As part of the ongoing effort to make it easier for people to drive less, the RMOW and community partners are showing how easy it can be to connect and share the ride. Whether on transit or shuttle, with a friend or coworker, it makes sense to travel together to the same destination.
Sometimes the hardest part can be asking the question: are you interested in carpooling? That's why the RMOW has some "ice breaker" carpool Valentines card. Download and print them, and tuck them in your bag so that you are ready to start that conversation.
From financial savings to catching up with friends, travelling together in a vehicle is less stressful and more enjoyable. Both radio stations are helping to create buzz through contests and prizes, so tune in for your chance to win!
Whistler’s friendly and welcoming community culture can help to solve some of our biggest challenges. Limiting reliance on personal vehicles results in reduced household expenses, improved personal health and local air quality, increased road safety, and overall community well-being. It is also the most significant action individuals can take to decrease local contributions to climate change, as 68 per cent of Whistler’s day-to-day community greenhouse gas emissions are the result of personal vehicle travel.
The RMOW now offers monthly carpool parking passes, with up to four licence plates attached to a single pass. This means that people commuting to Whistler village can enjoy more flexibility in how they travel, making it easier to create a lifestyle that is supported by a single vehicle. Learn more
Whistler Transit is another solution that adds flexibility and convenience. Throughout the month of February, the RMOW and BC Transit will be helping to break down misconceptions about bus travel. Every day is Family Day on Whistler Transit. This winter season, leave the driving and parking to us and benefit from the Whistler Family Travel Program. Bring up to three children 12 and younger on the bus for free with each fare paying adult. For more information www.whistler.ca/transit.
