Carpool Month, October 5-30, 2015
The goal of Carpool Month is to increase carpool program awareness and encourage commuters to try carpooling. Carpool.ca organized the first Canadian Carpool Week campaign in Calgary in October of 2003 and every year new communities get involved. In 2015, the promotional period will continue through the entire month of October. To receive updates on Carpool Month, please find links to our social media streams below:
Carpool Month 2015 will take place in the following communities: Calgary, Red Deer, Fort McMurray, Lethbridge, Regina, Saskatoon, Kelowna, Vernon, Penticton, Summerland, Peachland, Oliver and other Okanagan communities.
Thanks to our generous Carpool Month 2015 sponsors – CAA Saskatchewan, the Calgary Parking Authority, City of Kelowna, Regional District of North Okanagan and Carpool.ca, we have a number of activities planned to engage commuters during the month of October. The Carpool Month prize budget this year is $5,350. All prizes will be fuel cards in $100 or $200 denominations. Participants can enter to win fuel cards by participating in any of these three activities:
1. New Registrant: As always, our main goal is to grow our database of potential carpool partners in order to create new carpool groups. All participants registering with www.carpool.ca during Carpool Month (October 5-31, 2015) will be entered into random draws for fuel cards.
2. Returning Registrant Search: All current www.carpool.ca registrants returning to www.carpool.ca to search for new matches during Carpool Month will also be entered into random draws for fuel cards.
3. Complete a Survey: This year we will incorporate surveying registered participants into the Carpool Month promotion. Carpool.ca registrants will be emailed through www.carpool.ca and provided with a link to the www.carpool.ca Survey page. Fuel card prizes will be randomly awarded as incentives.
* Must be 18 years old to participate. Prizes limited to one per household. Winners must agree to release names in order to claim prizes. Random draws will take place between October 1 and November 30, 2015. Winners will be notified by email and given one week to claim prizes. Unclaimed prizes will be re-drawn.
