Rideshare Week

In lieu of Rideshare Week 2020, iCommute is celebrating California Clean Air Day on October 7. 

The San Diego region celebrated Rideshare Week 2019 September 30 - October 4, powered by Waze Carpool. One hundred registered employers encouraged thousands of employees to reimagine their commute and choose to carpool, vanpool, and take transit to work.

Commuters chose to try ridesharing and enjoyed promotions all week long:

  • Waze Carpool offered $1 flat rides all week long, resulting in more than 1,600 completed carpool trips - a 142% increase from Rideshare Week 2018!
  • MTS and NCTD hosted Free Ride Day on October 2, in conjunction with California Clean Air Day, and saw more than 100,000 additional transit trips.
  • Commuters showed us how they shared the ride on the iCommute Facebook page with a photo of their carpool, vanpool, or transit commute for a chance to win an iPad! View complete contest rules.

A big thank you to everyone who participated in Rideshare 2019 and helped to reduce traffic congestion and greenhouse gas emissions throughout the region. We hope you continue to rideshare all year long!

Reimagine your commute all year long!
