The race is on! The Great Race for Clean Air is a friendly competition between Bay Area employers to reduce pollution and improve air quality by encouraging employees to use commute alternatives such as carpool, vanpool, public transit and bicycling – anything but driving alone!
Last year, 190 companies throughout the Bay Area saved 435 tons of CO2 by using commute alternatives. By logging alternative commutes, your employees will be entered to win weekly prize drawings for $25 and $50 gift cards to popular merchants. Your company could win for highest overall CO2 savings, highest average of “clean commute days” logged or highest percent participation, not to mention bragging rights!
Register your company now to receive a welcome packet including a series of email messages and posters to promote the Great Race for Clean Air. The Great Race widget is also available to employers to use on their websites. Starting September 1, employees can track their commute trips and measure CO2 savings using 511 Rideshare’s online Trip Diary.
Employer registration runs through August 31. The Great Race for Clean Air is sponsored by the Bay Area Air Quality Management District in partnership with 511 Rideshare. For more information and to register your company for the Great Race, visit the Great Race website.
