Typically, people use transit or carpool to save money, help the environment, even to ease the stress of driving. But during Rideshare Week, held October 4 through 8, there was another good reason to try ridesharing: to win a prize!
District 7 staff who pledged to rideshare for just one day during Rideshare Week were eligible to win a number of prizes, ranging from gift cards to a Flip video camera. The giveaway was part of “The Perfect Match,” a ridesharing promotion sponsored by the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority. About 60 District 7 employees participated. Environmental Planner Francis Appiah, who regularly commutes to the headquarters building by bus or on the Red Line, snagged the Flip. Congratulations, Francis!
