On the Go
Traffic congestion, air quality and the daily commute are growing issues for Southern Nevadans. Become part of the solution by choosing to use an alternative mode of transportation. If you carpool, vanpool, bike, ride a motorcycle, walk or use transit just four times a month, instead of driving to work alone, you will help to improve our air quality and reduce traffic congestion.
Check with your employer to see if they participate in the Club Ride program. If not, encourage them to join. Some incentives include monthly prize drawings and work site preferential parking for carpool/vanpool participants.
