What is the RideShark Green Rewards Program?

The RideShark Green Rewards Program offers rewards to users of sustainable travel options. Users log their trips taken by walking, cycling, carpooling, vanpooling or public transit, or trip avoided through telework or compressed work weeks. With each sustainable trip logged, users earn points. These points can be redeemed for Green Rewards offered by businesses like you!
