at the University of Waterloo

Automobile emissions pose a threat to human health as well as the environment. The various pollutants, which include nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, hydrocarbons, ozone, and suspended particulate, are products of the burning of fossil fuels. They are a primary source of air pollution, causing serious human health defects such as respiratory disorders (e.g. asthma and bronchitis). This air pollution also contributes to acid rain and smog, which have widespread effects on areas far beyond where the pollutants are emitted.

There are a number of long distance ride-sharing opportunities.

The Walksafe Service is operated by UW Student Security from 8pm-2am every day of the year. The service is complimentary, and Student Security will escort you to and from campus destinations upon request.

Join the Commuter Challenge the first week of June!
