Having OC Transpo routes available to and from campus offers the Carleton community an opportunity to opt for more sustainable transportation options, rather than relying on personal vehicles. The university’s location along the river and the canal also provides commuters with a range of pathways for utilizing active transportation methods, and even the option of skating when the canal freezes in the winter. Carleton is dedicated to promoting sustainable transportation and continuously works towards increasing the usage of eco-friendly commuting modes within its community.
