NuRide Challenge

Take the NuRide Challenge!

So far, 35 Yale University staff have signed up with NuRide to earn rewards. For those of you who have not heard about NuRide, it is like Frequent Flyer Miles for your car. Every time you share a ride with someone as a participating NuRider, you earn "NuRide Miles" which you can redeem for gift cards, gift certificates and other rewards from corporate partner sponsors such as Brookstone, XM Satellite Radio and others.

On March 20, 2006, Governor Rell issued a 2,000,000 Mile Rideshare Challenge, which is a "regional initiative that brings government, corporations and citizens together to help alleviate traffic congestion and reduce automobile emissions throughout the state." As part of the challenge, state residents will be able to use the NuRide Network to find the ideal partner with whom to share a single ride for work.

The Connecticut Challenge is the second in a series of regional rideshare challenge events being promoted by NuRide. NuRide is a free benefit that Aetna, Cendant Mobility, Pfizer, Pitney Bowes, United Illuminating, Yale University and other Connecticut companies currently promote to their staff at no cost to them.
