Spare the Air for Bucks

Click here for the Spare the Air for Bucks registration formPlacer County Transportation Planning Agency (PCTPA) is sponsoring Spare the Air for Bucks prize drawings. Cash amounts of $100, and/or a $25 gift certificate to Amazon.com or Target can be won during July, August, and September – the months when summer heat combines with automobile exhaust to produce some of our worst air pollution in Placer County.  That’s when reducing your vehicle trips by using a “clean air commute” option makes a lot of sense – and dollars, too.  If you participate all three months, you have a chance to win the grand prize of $200 cash.

Clean air commute modes include carpooling, vanpooling, bicycling, walking, riding transit or taking the train, and telecommuting. Just use a clean air commute option at least once during each month to be eligible to win. You can also use a combination of any of these options over the course of the month. Remember, the more often you use clean air commute modes, the more chances you have to win each month.

Eligible participants must be employed in Placer County.

To enter, complete the online registration form, logging your preferred clean air commute mode(s) for the month. Registrations are due following the end of the entry month and must be received by the 7th of the following month (example: July registrations are due no earlier than the last week of July and no later than August 7th).

Registration forms must be submitted online only.  Just one registration per month, please. For questions, call Solvi Sabol at (530) 823-4029 or email ssabol [at] pctpa [dot] net.

To help us get the word out about the Spare the Air for Bucks program and to encourage others to use a clean air commute, we’ve provided a flyer that can be printed and displayed at your office worksite.  Also provided is a three month calendar to keep track of the alternative commute modes used. (This calendar is for your use only – faxed or e-mailed copies of this calendar will not be processed. Please complete your registration online.)
