One Day Clean Commute

About One Day Clean Commute

The One Day Clean Commute Campaign was created by the Sonoma County Energy and Sustainability Division to motivate and inspire employees to choose clean commute options rather than driving to work solo.

Clean commute options include ridesharing (carpooling), biking, walking, teleworking, and using transit to get to work. The goal is to have all County employees use a clean commute method to get to work at least one day per week.

Benefits of Clean Commuting

The benefits of clean commuting include cutting fuel costs and greenhouse gas emissions, developing friendships between carpoolers, the ability to use commute time for reading or working (if using transit), and the health benefits of walking and biking.

Financial savings for the employee are significant. Currently the average county employee pays $1,231.83 on fuel costs alone. Eliminating one commute day per week would save each employee about $246.83 per year. Looked at another way, if 85% of employees who currently drive solo to work eliminated one commute day per week, altogether we could save $926,314 in a year!
