Rideshare Week

Commuters and employers throughout the San Diego region joined iCommute during National Rideshare Week to celebrate the many benefits of commute alternatives. Thank you to everyone who shared the ride by choosing a carpool (including uberPOOL), vanpool, or transit commute! 

Go green, save green

Commuters. More than one thousand commuters pledged to carpool, vanpool, or take transit during National Rideshare Week, and learned how leaving their solo drives behind can help them go green, save green:

  • They saved money by sharing commute costs and reducing wear and tear on their vehicles
  • They reduced traffic and greenhouse gas emissions in their communities
  • They recaptured time by working or reading when someone else drove

Employers. Throughout the San Diego region, employers joined the excitement by registering their organization to encourage employees to go green and save green during National Rideshare Week. 

All registered employers received:

  • An uberPOOL promo code that employees can use to receive a $5 discount on up to three rides during National Rideshare Week, between 5 – 9 a.m. or 3 – 7 p.m.
  • Incentives to distribute to employees
  • Support and promotional materials from the iCommute team
  • A commemorative certificate
  • Recognition in a print ad in a regional newspaper, on iCommute social media, and on the iCommute website

In addition, registered organizations earned points toward an iCommute Diamond Award.
