Find Commute Options

Welcome to ecoCommute

EcoCommute allows Global Affairs Canada (GAC) employees in the National Capital Region (NCR) to travel efficiently and sustainably to and from the office by

  • proposing different transportation options for their commute (for example, carpooling, walking, ice skating, taking public transit, riding a bike or electric scooter, and much more)
  • matching users with one another based on their commuting style and preferences (for example, office hours, area of the city they live in, etc.)

In addition to improving the employee commuting experience, ecoCommute supports GAC’s commitment to the Greening Government Strategy by tracking the amount of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions avoided during each trip

Carpool to work

Why should employees use ecoCommute?

  • To discover ways of commuting sustainably with and without colleagues
  • To improve the department’s environmental footprint and their own
  • To seamlessly and automatically track the amount of GHG emissions avoided during their commute
  • To identify a wide selection of transportation options and help with trip planning
  • To have the option of having a travel companion by commuting with colleagues, regardless of their preferred mode of transportation
  • To choose a healthier and more sustainable method of transportation

What are the benefits?

  • Less demand for employee parking spots reduces stress during peak travel times and increases access to parking for those who require it
  • Having the option to travel with colleagues can decrease overall commuting stress and frustration levels and enhance social connections
  • Carpooling reduces the costs of driving and parking and can improve traffic flow on the roads
  • Opting for healthier commuting methods can improve employees’ lifestyle habits
  • Fewer cars on the road results in reduced GHG emissions in the environment
