Rideshare Month - October 2016

October is Rideshare Month, when we celebrate the many benefits of commute alternatives. Rather than driving alone, choose a carpool, vanpool, bike, walk, or transit commute and get there together! Save money; go green; and socialize, work, rest, read, or text while someone else drives.

get there together - join the Rideshare 2016 Challenge
Commuters. National Rideshare Week is October 3 – 7. Join the challenge and see how ridesharing can improve your commute. Create an iCommute account and log trips during National Rideshare Week for a chance to win prizes. We're giving away a prize each day, plus one grand prize at the end of the week. Each time you log a trip you'll be entered to win! Carpool (including uberPOOL and Lyft Line), vanpool, bike, walk, and transit commute trips are eligible.

Employers. Register for the Rideshare 2016 Corporate Challenge. Join the excitement by registering your organization for the Corporate Challenge and encouraging employees to get there together throughout the month of October. It’s a fun way to support your organization’s transportation, parking, or environmental/green goals. Ridesharing can save your employees time and money, while helping reduce stress.

Register your organization to take part in this friendly competition among organizations in similar size categories, where employees are encouraged to log their carpool, vanpool, walk, bike, or transit trips to earn points throughout October. iCommute provides resources to all participants at no cost! When your organization joins the challenge and encourages employees to rideshare, you can earn points toward the iCommute Diamond Awards, too.

The winning employer in each size category will receive recognition in a print ad in a regional newspaper, on iCommute social media, and on the iCommute website, as well as a commemorative plaque, a bagel breakfast, and mention in a SANDAG press release. Register today - registration will close on Tuesday, September 27.
