Carpooling: American as apple pie

What are you waiting for?  Simply fill out a pledge form and email/fax/mail it back to us for your chance to win. 

"Alright," you're asking "what's the catch?"  You pledge to switch just one of your drive-alone commute trips each month to a healthier mode (walking, biking, carpooling, or transit) and we'll enter you for a chance to win.

Just one trip each month is all were asking.  And if you're already a smart commuter you can enter too!

This month's winners both pledged to step up their smart commute two additional days each week.  That's a lot of gas and parking costs saved, congestion relieved, and carbon sequestered!

Lori started carpooling with her husband to save money on fuel costs.  Even though prices have fallen recently, they've kept up their carpool and are really enjoying it!

Mickey's got fewer dinosaurs in his commute

Mickey, on the other hand, is a 99% TriMet guy.  He takes the MAX in most days now because of the convenience, cost savings, and to lessen his commute's environmental impact.  His "alternative" commute now is driving to work. 

Way to go Mickey and Lori!  Why not fill out a pledge form and secure your chance to win a free night of luxury in the city?
