Even though we have one of the largest bus networks in North America combined with rapid transit, there are still many who rely on our roads to get to and from work. TransLink and Jack Bell Ride-Share present the annual Ride-Share Week to raise awareness for commuting options in particular, carpooling programs.
Across BC, commuters can search an online database to find a ride-match in their area, whether they can offer a ride or need a ride. To encourage commuters to use this online system, all those who sign up during Ride-Share Week (October 4-8, 2010) will be entered to win prizes such as gas coupons, ferry vouchers, and a chance to win a rail trip for two through the Rockies. All new and current commuters in the online database will be eligible for prizes this week.
I also have two $60 vouchers for BC Ferries to give away between now and Wednesday, then again from Wednesday to Friday. To enter to win, please leave a comment with your answer to the following:
What’s the name of the Ride-Share Week Dummy?
I will draw one winner on Wednesday at 12:00pm and then provide another question to answer for a draw on Friday. Follow @BCrideshareweek on Twitter for updates throughout the week as well.
Update The winner for the first half of this contest is Mark.
The next question to answer in order to qualify for the second $60 voucher for BC Ferries is: How many years has Ride-Share Week been running?
Leave your answer in the form of a comment and I’ll do another draw on Friday October 8th.
Update The second winner is Toby, congratulations!
