- A person riding on a transit bus instead of in a personal vehicle produces 66% fewer polluting emissions to travel the same distance
- People who use public transit are 3 times more likely to get 30 minutes per day of moderate physical activity helping them live longer healthier lives
Re-discover the benefits of riding the bus with Green Venture’s Totally Transit education program.
In partnership with the Hamilton Street Railway (HSR), Green Venture has developed the Totally Transit for Kids program to introduce elementary school students to Hamilton’s public transit system. Through hands-on participation students acquire the skills to take the bus safely and confidently.
Furthermore, it makes the case for public transit with a focus on climate change, air quality, energy conservation and health. By engaging children at an early age, they will be able to make informed transportation choices for the rest of their lives.
For children, Totally Transit for Kids provides active participation skills, aligns with Grade 5 curriculum and is appropriate for all elementary school students interested in energy conservation and sustainable transportation. Totally Transit is delivered as a stand-alone program and can be a great addition to an EcoHouse Sustainability Tour or to a full day of EcoHouse and Museum of Steam and Technology curriculum based educational programming.
Green Venture also offers a non-school version of this program, Totally Transit for Older Adults, which helps provides skills for adults and newcomers to successfully navigate their local public transit service.
By engaging seniors, it permits them to retain their freedom of access to the community.
