Celebrate Rideshare Month

October 1 - October 31

Commuters across the Valley celebrate Rideshare Month and leave their car at home to ride transit, carpool or vanpool, work from home, bike or walk.

Learn More About Alternative Modes

When you carpool, ride the bus or light rail, walk to work, ride your bike to the office or even take advantage of your employer’s telework or compressed work week options, you are contributing to an important Valley wide objective: cleaner air.  Not only do you save money and ease traffic congestion by using alternative modes, you help to reduce the estimated 770 tons of carbon monoxide and 3,000 tons of particulates released in Valley skies every day. 

Get involved to make a difference!

1.  Join us for our kickoff event on Friday, September 26 from 11 am – 1 pm at CityScape’s Patriots Park in downtown Phoenix, 1 E. Washington and pledge to use an alternative mode during Rideshare Month. There will be great music, fun times and prizes you can win simply by taking the pledge.  Click here for details.

2.  Participate in the Rideshare Month Employer Challenge from October 5-11. Participating TRP companies can compete against like-sized employers and are asked to encourage their employees to get involved. Winning companies can win prizes and a special plaque which proclaims them the Employer Challenge Champion in their size group. To learn more and download the fall kit, click here.

3.  During the entire month of October, anyone that tracks their commute and uses alternative modes will earn points which allow them to enter and win great prizes. Go to and register today. You’ll soon be on your way to earning points and entering to win great prizes!
