Transpass offers a cheaper, greener way to commute


By Craig Leroux, Senior Communications Officer

Queen’s University and the City of Kingston are teaming up to make commuting to work by public transit more convenient and lighter on the wallet. The Employer Transpass Program allows Queen’s employees to subscribe to an unlimited trip, monthly transit pass through payroll deduction at a discounted rate, and the more people who sign up the deeper the discount.

“Queen’s is committed to promoting sustainability and is proud to be a partner in Kingston Transit’s Transpass program,” says Donna Janiec, Acting Associate Vice-Principal (Facilities). “The program encourages an environmentally friendly way to commute and will mean savings for employees who choose public transit.”
