October is Rideshare to Work Month!

I'm just gonna throw this out there as I've got a broken bone and feel like I need to do something positive:


October is Rideshare to Work Month!
Please partner with us to promote Rideshare to Work Month aimed at encouraging employees to share the ride to work, saving money, reducing stress and helping the environment.  If your employees carpool just one day during the month of October, we enter them into our prize drawing to win a $500 Gas Gift Card or Garmin GPS! 
We offer FREE ride matching assistance to help people find someone to carpool with.
Schedule a Commuter Fair with us, or simply forward this Rideshare to Work Month flier to your co-workers.

It is time to Nominate yourself or your company for a regional Commuter Choice Award!
Every year the region acknowledges companies and individuals who promote commuting options. Awards recognize outreach efforts, achievements and programs designed to reduce drive-alone traffic that were completed between October 2010 and September 2011.

Last year’s awards included:
Progressive Organization
