What a privilege it is to work with the many Treasure Valley businesses, organizations, and employees who so proudly support our mission to improve the quality of life through smart commute options. ACHD Commuteride could not have accomplished the successes outlined in this report without these partnerships.
From its beginnings as Valley Commuteride, a carpool matching service established over 40 years ago, to its current status as the longest running multi-employer vanpool program in the nation, Commuteride has led the Treasure Valley in a reduction in vehicle miles traveled. Through education, outreach, and partnerships, we continue to promote Transportation Demand Management.
Forty years later, our goal remains the same: preserve the life of our existing roadways and limit the impacts of traffic in the Treasure Valley. We take pride in the positive impacts that result from our work – fewer greenhouse gas emissions and water pollutants.
All in all, 2018 was an outstanding year. It is my personal and professional pleasure to lead Commuteride toward an even more successful 2019. Thank you to everyone who supports Commuteride. We look forward to continuing our partnerships, education, and services with each and every one of you.
