Easy Commuting from the Suburbs - Everyday is Bike to Work Day

Easy Commuting from the Suburbs - Everyday is Bike to Work Day

Thanks to Jason for sharing his story of being the champion of his commute!  He documents how he saves over an hour a day by combining FLEX micro-mobility with public transit!  

The FLEX can seamlessly fit with other modes of travel for a fun, easy, multi-modal commute: ride to transit, take onto transit, disembark and ride to the destination. When folded, FLEX can be taken onto the transit system at any time!  

Here's Jason's personal account: 

My Commute

I commute from Newmarket (Yonge and Mulock) to The University of Toronto (Spadina and College) with my Revelo Flex. It cuts my commute time from approximately 2 to 1.5 hours.

Why I love my Revelo Flex

It solves my First and Last Mile Problem.

I don’t have to wait or find parking at the main Aurora GO parking lot. I can ride in from the Additional Parking Lot at Aurora Go. Not a popular lot because it is one kilometer away, but I have my Flex!

Saves time, money, and sanity from avoiding the TTC to UofT. I can get off on Bay St. if I bring my bike instead of crowding near Yonge St.

Yorkdale TTC

Occasionally I drive to Yorkdale and bring my Revelo Flex onto the TTC. I get off at Spadina or Dupont and ride down to UofT. Instead of walking to and waiting for the streetcar at Spadina Station.
