Rideshare Week: September 30–October 4

Join SANDAG iCommute during Rideshare Week (Monday, September 30 through Friday, October 4) as we celebrate the many benefits of commute alternatives.

Rather than driving alone, share the ride and socialize, work, rest, read, or text while someone else drives.

Reimagine your commute!

Employers. Join the excitement – register your organization and encourage employees to reimagine their commute during Rideshare Week!

By sharing the ride, your employees can reduce stress and be more productive at work. Investing in an alternative commute program can benefit your employees’ wellness, productivity, retention, and your bottom line.

iCommute provides promotional resources to all participants at no cost! All registered employers will receive:

  • A toolkit with promotional materials and support from the iCommute team
  • Information about ridesharing promotions during Rideshare Week
  • Recognition in a print ad in a regional newspaper, on iCommute social media, and on the iCommute website

In addition, registered organizations will earn a point toward a SANDAG iCommute Diamond Award.

Commuters. Rideshare Week is September 30–October 4. Try ridesharing by choosing to carpool (including Waze Carpool, Lyft Shared, and UberPool), vanpool, or take transit to work during Rideshare Week. Enjoy the convenience of ridesharing, get there faster when you use the HOV lane, and reduce your carbon footprint.

It’s easy to share the ride. Explore your choices:
