The Alamo Commutes “Fall in Love With your Commute” Challenge is designed to reduce traffic, improve air quality and promote carpooling by recognizing new and veteran carpoolers. Record your carpool, vanpool or eligible rideshare trips on Alamo Commutes between February 14 – March 15 and you’ll be entered to win $300 worth of cash prizes!

Step 1

Meet your match – your carpool match, that is! Create a free account with Alamo Commutes to find your carpool match. If you already have an Alamo Commutes account, congrats! You’re almost there.

Step 2

Once you’ve set up your Alamo Commutes profile, find the carpool partner that works for you. You can filter your matches by employer, gender and schedule. If you have trouble finding a match, widen your search radius or search “on the way”.

Step 3

Once you’ve found your carpool partner, record your carpool trip on either the Alamo Commutes website or mobile app. If you already have a carpool, just keep recording your trips! If you’ve recorded at least one carpool trip within the challenge timeframe, you’ll be entered to win one of six $50 Visa gift cards.
