Rideshare Week 2012, held October 1-5, is an annual event designed to increase awareness about the benefits of using sustainable transportation such as carpooling, vanpooling, riding the bus, bicycling, walking and telecommuting. Commuters are asked to make a commitment to use an alternative means of transportation (other than driving alone) at least one day during Rideshare Week in order to help relieve our congested streets and highways, improve air quality, save energy resources and commute costs. By pledging to rideshare one day during Rideshare Week 2012, participants are entered to win some great prizes such as a bicycle donated by Snider's Cyclery and cash gift cards.
