Thank you for joining SANDAG in taking the pledge to Rideshare for Clean Air during Rideshare Week (Monday, October 3 – Sunday, October 9), as we celebrated the many benefits of choosing sustainable transportation. Pledges were open to individuals and organizations. By choosing to rideshare however frequently, you saved money, reduced roadway congestion, and improved the San Diego region’s air quality. Even though Rideshare Week 2022 is over, you can choose to share the ride all year long! Small changes make a BIG impact.

Individuals: Pledge participants chose to carpool (including Lyft Shared and UberPool), vanpool, bike, walk, or ride transit. Participants who shared a photo while ridesharing between October 3-9 and tagged #RideshareSD on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter were also entered into the social media sweepstakes for the chance to win a prize.
