www.carpool.ca created Carpool Week to initiate change by increasing knowledge and awareness of carpooling as a sustainable transportation choice. This is the 9th Annual Carpool Week Campaign and thanks to generous sponsors, this year it takes place in eleven communities over the last two weeks of October 2011 with lots of great prizes including iPads, Kindles, GPS navigation systems and fuel cards!
This year there are four Carpool Week activities to choose from. Participating in any of these activities will enter you into a random draw for great Carpool Week prizes.
2011 activities include:
- Register: If you are not currently registered with Carpool.ca, please Register, create a commuter profile and search for carpool partners.
- Re-Visit & Search: If you are already registered with Carpool.ca, please log-in and search for new carpool matches. As the database grows, so does the potential for matching. Check regularly for new matches or add a second trip – perhaps you would like to carpool to an event or weekly activity.
- Share a Story: Do you have a Carpool Story that you would like to share? Share it with us so that we might inspire others to consider carpooling.
- Trip Tracker: Are you concerned about the environment and your environmental footprint? Use our new Trip Tracker and calculate the savings achieved by reducing trips.
October 17-21 is carpool week in Calgary, Lethbridge, Saskatoon and Regina.
October 24-28 is carpool week in Edmonton, Kelowna, Vernon, Penticton,Summerland, Peachland and Oliver.
But remember, you can carpool no matter where you live or what the date! Who will carpool with?
