Employers and commuters in the San Diego region are invited to participate in National Rideshare Week, October 1-5, hosted locally by the San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG) iCommute program.

Employers can register to encourage employees to share the ride through this Friday, September 21. Registered employers will receive regional recognition for their efforts to educate employees and promote sustainable commute choices.

Commuters can pledge to share the ride during Rideshare Week by choosing a carpool, transit, or vanpool commute and completing the pledge form on the iCommute website. Anyone who pledges will automatically be entered to win an Apple Watch!*

Commuters can leave their solo drive behind and enjoy the ride all week long:

  • Free Waze Carpool rides all week long, October 1-5
  • A Free Ride Day on Tuesday, October 2, with MTS and NCTD
  • Discounted Lyft and Uber rides to/from transit stops on Free Ride Day

Rideshare Week is one of SANDAG’s many agency efforts to encourage alternative transportation choices in the San Diego region. This includes development of the Regional Mobility Hub Strategy to provide easier access to transit and shared mobility choices by enhancing connections to/from transit and popular community and employer destinations.For additional information about National Rideshare Week, visit 511sd.com/iCommute, email iCommute@sandag.org, or call 511 and say “iCommute.”
