Pledge for Clean Air During Rideshare Week, October 3-9

SANDAG has taken the pledge to support National Rideshare Week 2022 Monday, October 3, through Sunday, October 9.

Rideshare Week is celebrated nationwide to promote sustainable transportation options. This year in the San Diego region, participants are encouraged to take a pledge and make a small change that helps positively impact air quality in a big way.

Rideshare Week coincides with California Clean Air Day and Free Ride Day. Both will be celebrated on Wednesday, October 5.

SANDAG provides resources, subsidies, and incentives to support alternative transportation choices such as carpooling, vanpooling, biking, walking, trying transit, and sharing the ride through the SANDAG Sustainable Transportation Services program. Choosing sustainable transportation can help save money, reduce regional congestion, and benefit the environment.

  • Save 15% off two Lime Scooter rides with the code “LIMERIDESHAREWEEK,” valid October 3-9
  • Free Ride Day is Wednesday, October 5. Jump on any fixed route like the Trolley, bus, or COASTER, and enjoy the ride for free
