HPA recognized as a bicycle friendly business

Hamilton Port Authority was recently recognized by the Share the Road Coalition as a Bicycle Friendly Business. The Port received an honourable mention for its work to make cycling a viable option for staff, customers and visitors.

HPA supports SoBi, Hamilton’s bike share program, by providing storage space for bicycles and equipment. HPA also sponsors a SoBi bike share station at the corner of James St. N. and Guise, where visitors to the neighbourhood can consult a signpost with directions to the Arts & Science brewery, Bayfront Park, HMCS Haida, and other area destinations. The organization encourages active transportation among staff by providing access to SoBi passes, as well as on-site bike parking at its James St. office.

“We support efficient transportation in all its forms,” said HPA President & CEO Bruce Wood. “And supporting our staff’s ability to choose active transportation options just makes sense – it’s part of a healthy workplace.”

Pleased with its results in this first year of the Bicycle Friendly Business program, HPA will continue looking for additional ways to support cycling.
