Win gas cards and ferry passes with TransLink Ride-Share Week, October 5-9!

Win Chevron gas cards and B.C. Ferries ferry passes during TransLink Ride-Share Week, October 5-9!

To win, just sign up at ride-share.com, a free ride-matching database from Jack Bell Ride-Share. Check out the video above to see how to register and learn more about the service.

Ridesharing can cut emissions and save you time and money. (Owning a car isn’t cheap: the CAA says an average car can cost $6,516 a year — $17.85 a day!)

With ride-share.com, you can organize a regular carpool or a casual rideshare a few times a week. You can also do one-time rideshares to specific events like concerts. The site also provides company portals, so if you’re an employee of, say, eBay, you can just look for ridematches within your own company.

Sign up to rideshare, or just sign up your existing rideshare arrangement so other people can join your group. All of you plus the current ridesharers will be entered to win the gas cards and ferry passes!

And don’t forget to enter the TransLink Ride-Share Week Photo Contest, where you could win a $100 Chevron gas coupon. (There are currently no entries, so your odds are good :)

By the way, this whole week is part of a national ridesharing awareness campaign, encouraging everyone to share car trips whenever possible. Try ridesharing now: it’ll help reduce traffic and is a great option for travel during the Winter Olympic Games!

    I hate the way that Translink gives out gas money, as if gas consumption isn’t a big deal to Translink.

    Eugene: I forgot to mention that the gas cards are donated by Chevron, who are a sponsor of TransLink Ride-Share Week. The ferry passes are also sponsored by B.C. Ferries, another sponsor of the week. Gas consumption is a big deal — and ridesharing is a great way to cut that consumption and its related emissions.
