Be an air quality hero

Saving the Environment One Day at a Time.

Join Team RideFinders SM as air quality heroes and help save the environment! Commander CarpoolSM, Vanity VanpoolSM, Transit TitanSM, Ride RescuerSM, Mrs. MatchSM, The Cost CalculatorSM, Bike BoySM, and Telework TechSM are ordinary people, just like you, doing something extraordinary! They are committed to helping the environment and the air we breathe by ridesharing and encouraging others to do the same.

During the ozone season, which runs annually from April through October, Team RideFindersSM challenges you to unleash your inner hero and help them save Central Virginia by reducing the number of vehicles on the road and helping to reduce air pollution. Not only are you helping the region's air quality, but you can also save money on the cost of your commute, reduce vehicle wear and tear, and relieve commuting-related stress.

So do the extraordinary! Instead of driving alone, be an Air Quality Hero and carpool, vanpool, ride the bus, bike, walk, or telework this summer. Find me a carpool or vanpool match!

Request guest appearances of Air Quality heroes at your employer site.
