Your Kitchener apartment is in a great neighbourhood. Our preferred property management company, Williams and McDaniel, wants to make sure that you have all the information you need to take advantage of your premier location with these tips for easily getting around Kitchener.
Join a car share
Avoid the expense and stress of maintaining a vehicle and do the environment a favour by joining a car share program. Did you know that Ontario’s first car share program first served Kitchener-Waterloo? Community CarShare is still running today and is rapidly growing. Become a member to receive access to a car as little as thirty-minutes in advance. Use this helpful online map to locate a car nearest your Kitchener apartment.
Explore Kitchener on bike
Another way to navigate the streets of Kitchener is by bike. BikeKitchener is a local organization that is working hard to make biking easier and safer than ever before. For example, the city has just implemented green bike boxes to help cyclists steer clear of vehicles while waiting at intersections. Make sure your bike is ready to hit the road with a little maintenance at Ziggy’s Cycle and Sport (417 King Street West), a ten-minute drive from Newport Towers (550 Strasburg Road). Or you can fix up your bike on your own at the workshop at Recycle Cycles (37 Market Lane), an eight-minute drive or fifteen-minute bus ride from Newport Towers.
Join a bike share
Do you want to bike but aren’t ready to invest in wheels of your own? A number of bike shares are getting started in the Kitchener area. Join the movement by keeping up with the progress of Community Access Bikeshare and Grand River Public Bikeshare.
Take the bus
Grand River Transit operates buses throughout the city of Kitchener. Get on a bus, sit back and let the bus driver do the driving for you. There are many different types of fares to choose from, including monthly passes for frequent riders and discounted passes for seniors and students.
