Join the fleet
Did you know? The WRENCH
offers a bike fleet package for workplaces and schools. They also rent bikes for conferences and events.
You may have seen one of these electric buses on the streets of Winnipeg. These made-in-Manitoba transit buses feature a rapid charge battery system. Only 20 minutes to fully charge the bus. Apparently it passed muster with our Winnipeg winter – if it survived last year, it can survive any winter! Coming to a route near you? Get the story here
Grabbing a nap
Turns out it's not only Ottawa commuters who enjoy a nap on OC Transpo buses! Read the full CBC story here
Get paid to bike?
In France, 20 companies have joined an experiment that pays employees to bike to work
. Nice! Where do we sign up for that? Sometimes it takes more than a financial incentive
to get more people pedalling. Like showers, secure bike parking (and the absence of free car parking).
