Fresh air, exercise and a less-harried trip are the promises of biking or walking. These are great options where facilities exist and if your travel distance is manageable.

Iona College provides tools and services to help you make your walk or bike to work safe, convenient and enjoyable. The Bike Buddy matching service, for example, can help you find a walking or biking partner. To sign up for Bike Buddy matching, simply check the box "Would you like to find a Bike Buddy?" in your "Ridematching Preferences" in your profile.
