As San Diego region commuters prepare to return to the office, the SANDAG iCommute program is preparing for Rideshare Week, Monday, October 4 through Friday, October 8. Rideshare Week 2021 is presented in partnership with Commute with Enterprise, one of SANDAG’s approved vanpool vendors.

Rideshare Week is a nationally recognized event hosted across the country to celebrate alternate modes of transportation. This year, residents are encouraged to share the ride as they return to their commutes.

“Rideshare Week is about changing people’s habits and reducing emissions for a faster, fairer, and cleaner transportation system,” said SANDAG Chair and Encinitas Mayor Catherine Blakespear. “Carpooling is a great way for people to interact, rest, read, or catch up on work while someone else is driving.“

Employers can now register to participate and encourage employees who are returning to their commute to share the ride by choosing to carpool, vanpool, or take transit during Rideshare Week. Registration is now open at

Investing in an alternative commute program can benefit wellness, productivity, retention, and the bottom line. Registered employers will receive an etoolkit and a point toward the SANDAG iCommute Diamond Awards program. As a special incentive, employers that register by September 22 will be listed in a newspaper ad.

Employers are invited to join a SANDAG iCommute webinar to learn details about commuting options and ways to get your employees involved in Rideshare week.
