program will run from September 2012 to April 2013, and is designed to provide
all Mohawk College employees with an exclusive 25% discount on monthly HSR
transit passes. The Mohawk Student Association introduced significantly discounted passes for the College's Hamilton-based students in 2010.
HOW DOES IT WORK?

Campus Bookstore. The Bookstore will keep your form on file, and sell you your
monthly transit pass at a 25% discount. This form must be completed prior to
purchasing your first discounted pass, but your membership will never expire through
the duration of the pilot program, so you only need to fill out the form once.
HOW MUCH WILL I SAVE?
employees will receive an automatic discount of 25% off the regular adult
monthly pass price of $87, which makes your cost $65.25. If you already commute
by HSR, that’s an immediate saving of $21.75 every month, or $174 if you participate in all 8 months of the pilot program.
currently commute by car, your savings will be even greater! You’ll save on the
cost of fuel, vehicle maintenance, and parking ($525+ annually).
HOW DOES THIS HELP THE ENVIRONMENT?
helping to reduce your personal carbon footprint by lowering the amount of
harmful emissions that result from commuting in a single-occupant vehicle. The
average vehicle emits 240g CO2e/km, whereas the average bus trip will emit 77g
CO2e/km, which equals close to a 70% reduction in your commuting footprint.
The Sustainability Office encourages all Mohawk staff to explore the
option of using HSR transit and are here to answer any questions you may have.
