Win Lunch on Us! Join the Summer Clean Air Challenge
Reduce your drive alone trips and keep our SLO County air fresh and clean!
This Summer (and all year to be honest!) we encourage you to pick a greener and cleaner way to go. Choose a group of up to 10 friends, coworkers or commute buddies and compete to be the greenest team of all.
The team that reduces the most CO2 between July 1st and August 31st by using alternative modes for your commute, work trips, lunch trips, or personal errands, will win a catered lunch party from a local restaurant.
To join, click the ” Summer Clean Air Challenge” button under My Opportunities on the right side of your iRideshare dashboard. Once you are redirected to the challenge page, you can either create a new team or join an existing team. Lastly, log those trips and cross your fingers that you “outgreen” the rest!
