A park-and-ride allows users to drive their own vehicles to the designated location, meet their carpooling partners and leave their vehicle for the day without incurring additional costs for parking.
Each vehicle must display a dashboard parking pass which are available through EarthCare Sudbury by emailing EarthCare@GreaterSudbury.ca or 705-674-4455 ext. 4398.

Carpooling helps save money for parking and gas, reduces gas emissions that contribute to greenhouse effect and pollution and reduces wear and tear on your vehicle. By helping people find a riding partner, EarthCare is helping reduce greenhouse gas emissions and traffic congestion.
