Join SANDAG in taking the pledge to Rideshare for Clean Air during Rideshare Week (Monday, October 3 – Sunday, October 9), as we celebrate the many benefits of choosing sustainable transportation. Pledges are open to individuals and organizations. By choosing to rideshare, however frequently, you save money, reduce roadway congestion, and improve the San Diego region’s air quality. Ridesharing can be done on your daily commute to work or school, to a social event, or to run your everyday errands. Small changes make a big impact!

Individuals: Pledge to participate in SANDAG Rideshare Week 2022 by choosing to carpool (including Lyft Shared and UberPool), vanpool, bike, walk, or ride transit. Share a photo while ridesharing between October 3-9 and tag #RideshareSD on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter to be entered for the chance to win a prize. Ridesharing is convenient, saves you money, and helps the environment!
