Be an air quality hero

Saving the Environment One Day at a Time.

Join Commander CarpoolSM, Vanity VanpoolSM, Transit TitanSM, Ride RescuerSM, Mrs. MatchSM, The Cost CalculatorSM, Bike BoySM, and Telework TechSM - 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 our Clean Air Campaign (ozone season). During the Clean Air Campaign, which runs annually from April through October, we challenge you to unleash your inner hero and help them save Central Virginia by reducing the number of vehicles on the road to help reduce air pollution. The Clean Air Campaign also encourages environmental stewardship by taking small, simple actions that can have a lasting impact! TAKE our Air Quality Awareness Pledge! Download our Clean Air Fact Sheet.

You can also help by recording your "green" trips - bike, walk, telework, carpool, vanpool, transit or a combination of commute modes! WATCH how easy it is!

So do the extraordinary! Instead of driving alone, be an Air Quality Hero and carpool, vanpool, take transit, bike, walk, or telework this summer. Find me a carpool or vanpool match! CLICK here to stay up-to-date on program updates and news.


OTHER WAYS YOU CAN HELP THE ENVIRONMENT
Take the pledge! You can also take other small steps to incorporate real changes into your daily routine help save more money in your pocket, conserve energy, reduce waste and live healthier!

I WANT TO BE A CLEAN AIR CHAMPION! I'm interested in promoting the Clean Air Campaign to my staff, co-workers and fellow employees.Click here to contact RideFinders Program Manager.

Ozone Action Days!
Team RideFindersSM also notifies area employers when a Code Red Ozone Action Day forecast has been issued by the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality. Employees are then encouraged to share rides on days when air quality is expected to be in the "unhealthy" category.
