KITCHENER, ON​ February 5th, 2016 – February is Carpool Month, and through games, contests, and great prizes TravelWise is making it fun to get people engaged.

TravelWise is challenging Waterloo Region businesses to find ways to share rides to work, saving carbon emissions and money, while having fun in the process.

“In past years we’ve done one week challenges, but we found that just as momentum was building, the week ended,” says Katie Wall, TravelWise Program Manager. “This year we really wanted to emphasize that carpooling can be a fun and social experience.”

Participants are invited to take part in four challenges for the chance to win great prizes:

  • Week 1​: Post your carpool Prize: One out of five $25 Canadian Tire Gifts Cards
  • Week 2​: Log a carpool trip Prize: Samsung Galaxy Tablet
  • Week 3​: Post a #carpoolselfieWR on Twitter Prize: One out of five $25 Tim Hortons Gifts Cards
  • Week 4​: Send us your carpool story Prize: FitBit Flex

Travelwise will present an award to the organization with the most engagement points at the end of the month. To participate, visit, and visit the Sustainable Waterloo Region official website to see who’s leading the challenge every week.
