Ride Share Press Release

(CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA – October 4, 2013) October 14-18 is RideShare Week, and we are partnering with Dunkin Donuts to thank Central Virginia commuters for sharing the ride.

Commuters that share the ride via carpool, vanpool, transit, biking, walking or even telework can win a $10 Dunkin Donuts gift certificate. Simply send a photo to RideShare of your daily commute (or a picture of your home, yard or your car not in use if you telework!).

  • Email your photos to rideshare@tjpdc.org. Or post to our Facebook page atwww.facebook.com/rideshareinfo.
  • Include your name and mailing address so we can send your prize.
  • If you share the ride with others, include their contact info as well – we will send a $10 Dunkin Donuts certificate to everyone in the pool!
