The Alameda County Transportation Commission is launching Share Your Ride Week during the first week of October and invites all commuters to participate! From October 2nd through October 6th, Hacienda encourages you to join in and rethink your commute: “skip” traffic and “hop” on the bus, on BART or ACE, into a carpool, or onto a rideshare app.

Try a Commute Alternative
Share Your Ride Week is designed to help raise awareness about alternative modes of transportation and motivate people throughout Alameda County to leverage technologies that make sharing rides easier. Use this week to consider a different way of commuting and explore the many choices available. In addition to providing increased convenience and cost savings, commute alternatives also reduce pollution and regional traffic congestion. Want help planning your commute for Share Your Ride Week?
