San Mateo County Resource Team

The San Mateo County Spare the Air Resource Team has worked to reduce traffic congestion and greenhouse gas production by promoting commute alternatives to solo driving.

On May 1, 2014, the team will host a commute solutions workshop: Alternative Ways to Get to Work! The FREE workshop will be held at Skyline College in San Bruno from 8:30 am to 11:30 am. For more information, please see the workshop flierRSVP for the workshop now!

In 2013, the team collaborated with the Silicon Valley Leadership Group on the Health Happens in the Workplace Conference. The conference was attended by 250 Silicon Valley Human Resource professionals and explored ways that “active commuting” can be integrated into benefits offerings and wellness programs.

In 2012, the team hosted a Commute Solutions Workshop for employers at Facebook's new campus in Menlo Park. The workshop focused on innovative, free and easy options for employers.

In 2011, the team supported Bike to Work Day on May 12 by funding refreshments volunteers handed out to biking commuters at 26 "energizer stations" located along biking commute routes. The team also provided support for a regional Green Business Workshop that month held in San Jose by the Santa Clara County Resource Team.

In 2010, the San Mateo County Resource Team supported the Great Race for Clean Air 2010, a friendly contest that challenges Bay Area employees and employers to commit to finding alternatives to commuting by car alone for two full months. San Mateo County winners included Cisco Systems, Shelter Network, Nektar Therapeutics and Gilead Sciences. Anthony Driver from Oracle, Redwood City, won the highest CO2 savings by an individual IN THE BAY AREA.
