TRAVEL TIME + STAFF DRIVERS
Travel time is the compensation paid out to you, our team, for the extra effort it takes to get safely to AND from out of town shifts. Staff drivers receive FULL travel time allotment to a location – and passengers get half. Passenger travel time will only kick in from the 1/2 hour mark and up – so if travel time to a location is 1/2 hour each way the drivers take the travel time allotment and passengers do not.
If travel time is 1 hour each way the drivers get 1 hour and each way and passengers get 1/2. And so on and so forth.
Have a car? Don’t mind carpooling? Send us an email to let us know!
Help us move the team and earn a few extra bucks in the process!
INFORMATION FOR STAFF DRIVERS BELOW
Our MAIN pickup and drop off location is Timothy’s (Church and Alexander) because it is central, in a safe(r) neighbourhood, and located near the downtown core so if staff are dropped here late at night they can easily catch a cab or walk home (many of our staff live downtown)
We also make exceptions for some northern pickups at York Mills Shell Gas Station (Yonge and York Mills) and Finch Station Passenger Pick Up,, and a western pickup at either Royal York Subway station or Islington Station Passenger Pickup. These locations are as much about accessibility for the team as they are about getting you all meeting at a place that is in closer proximity to the job you’re headed to.
LATE NIGHT DROP OFFS/RETURNING FROM A SHIFT
if the subway is still running, staff drivers are asked to drop their team members a a subway station – however if you are leaving a shift late at night, please ensure you're taking staff back to their approximate neighbourhood at the end of the job, rather than abandoning them on a dark street corner in front of a closed subway station. If this extra 10-15 minutes you have to go out of your way as a driver to get them somewhere central (eg. Yonge and Bloor even) prevents even ONE of our staff getting mugged, harassed, menaced or worse, then this is WORTH IT to us here in office – and we will happily add that additional time on your travel time bill. Just send us an email to let us know you went that “extra mile” and we’ll happily approve it.
Please keep safety in mind at all times team – your colleagues are putting their lives in your (very capable) hands when we ask you to drive, so at the end of the night please be sure to get everyone back to a central location where they can safely make it back home.
