UCLA Celebrates Rideshare Week 2014

UCLA Celebrates Rideshare Week - Thursday, October 9, 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. at Bruin Plaza

Are you tired of traffic congestion, stressed by aggressive drivers and exasperated by the cost of gas? If so, have you ever thought about ridesharing? Join UCLA Transportation in the celebration of the Rideshare Week 2014 events.

The California Rideshare Week 2014 is Oct. 6-10 and is an opportunity to raise awareness about the benefits of sharing a ride to work! Ridesharing helps commuters reduce trip costs and contributes to decreasing greenhouse gas emissions. There are also health benefits associated with commuting by foot, bike or even transit. Carpooling and vanpooling allows commuters to enjoy the ride while traveling.

UCLA faculty, staff or students may share the ride and win prizes by participating in any of these activities:
