Get There Together – 2015 Rideshare Challenge

This October, we’ve teamed up with the SANDAG iCommute program to celebrate Rideshare Month and the benefits of commute alternatives. We know that you have many options in the San Diego region, so why drive alone when you can socialize, save money, and go green when you rideshare. We invite you to take part, and get there together.

Whether it’s a bike ride, carpool, vanpool, Uber fare split, walk, or transit commute, you can switch up your travel routine in healthy and affordable ways during this month-long challenge. 

You can easily share your ride with a colleague and split the fare for the ultimate cost efficiency, or take Uber alongside public transit as the first leg or last leg of any journey. For a dose of healthy exercise, pair a morning bike commute with an evening uberXL ride home. The combinations are endless, because no matter what mode of transportation you choose, you can rely on the Uber app to fulfill your travel needs, at any time of day. Visit 511sd.com/iCommute to learn more about Rideshare Month.

We’re amazed by how many riders use Uber as a part of their daily commute, and we’re looking to feature a few iCommute participants. Click here and tell us about your commuting experience and how Uber enhances your mobility around San Diego.

And today, more than 40,000 restaurants globally–from poke shops to pasta spots–are sharing food with customers through UberEATS.
