Rideshare Month - October 2016

It's Rideshare Month! Rather than driving alone, choose a carpool, vanpool, transit, bike, or walk commute and get there together! Save money; go green; and socialize, work, rest, read, or text while someone else drives. 

get there together

Employers. October is Rideshare Month, when we celebrate the many benefits of commute alternatives. Eighty-four employers, representing more than 180,000 employees are participating in the Rideshare 2016 Corporate Challenge. These employers will support transportation, parking, or environmental/green goals by encouraging employees to choose alternative commutes. Each day an employee logs an eligible trip in the iCommute TripTracker tool, they will earn one point for their employers.

As of Monday, October 24, here are the leaders in each size category: 

Don't see your employer listed? Check the full standings to see how you're stacking up against the competition. 

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. Employer registration for the Rideshare 2016 Corporate Challenge closed on September 27. 

Commuters. National Rideshare Week was October 3 – 7. Commuters were invited to create an iCommute account and log trips during National Rideshare Week for a chance to win prizes. We gave away a prize each day, plus one grand prize at the end of the week - a $500 gift card provided by Cal Coast Bicycles. Carpool (including uberPOOL and Lyft Line), vanpool, transit, bike, and walk commute trips were all eligible.
