The Greater Kingston Chamber of Commerce has announced a partnership which will see employees of businesses who are part of the Chamber able to access Kingston Transit’s Employer Transpass Program.

According to a release from the Chamber, all member businesses — and their 18,000 employees — will be able to take advantage of monthly Kingston Transit passes at a reduced rate.

“More than 650 Kingston businesses, who are members of The Chamber, will now have this benefit. This cost saving benefit coupled with others already offered by the Chamber and its membership continues our mission to connect and support our local businesses,” said Karen Cross, CEO of The Greater Kingston Chamber of Commerce.

The Chamber said it will formalize the partnership Kingston Transit, on Thursday, Jan. 25, 2024.

“The Employer Transpass Program provides significant value for employees and employers across Kingston and we are pleased to enter into this agreement with the Chamber of Commerce,” said Christopher Norris, General Manager of Transit Services at Kingston Transit. “In addition to extending the reach of our program, this partnership assists in alleviating traffic congestion and contributes to the City’s objectives in reducing greenhouse gas emissions by reducing single occupancy vehicles.”

According to Vitor Brumatti, Manager of Communications, Events & PR for the Chamber, employees of businesses that are members of the Greater Kingston Chamber of Commerce and who are interested in taking advantage of the Transpass can contact the Chamber directly via email at [email protected].
