Community Mobilization Project
Smart travel decisions benefit you, the environment and our community. The mission of the Community Mobilization Project is to build and empower a community of New Yorkers who care about managing their impact, reducing traffic congestion, helping the environment and improving the quality of life in their region.
The Community Mobilization Project will provide opportunities for local residents and businesses to come together and drive positive change in their communities. One way we will be rewarding and recognizing our change champions is through our Community Mobilization Badges which can be earned by completing simple tasks such as running a ride match, teleworking or tracking a trip. (see details below)
Additionally, the supporting partners who share our mission often donate gift cards that we use to reward members through raffles and other promotions for sharing photos and stories that demonstrate your commitment and inspire other members.

Community Mobilization Partners
Our Partners share our mission and work with us to develop, deliver and advocate for sustainable transportation solutions.
Some partners work with us directly to develop and deliver transportation solutions, while some support the mission by expanding our reach and sharing information about smart travel options to broader audiences. Others, whom we recognize as our Supporting Partners, donate goods and services that are used to engage and reward our members for taking positive action.

Thank you to our members and partners for making our Smart Travel Badge Drive a huge success!
On November 9, the 511NY Rideshare team launched our first-ever Smart Travel Badge Drive with the goal of turning 511NY Rideshare member actions into donations to local community organizations.
We encouraged our members to participate by earning Community Mobilization badges on their profiles for taking actions like completing their profile, becoming a Clean Air NY Advocate, or planning a transit trip.
For each badge our members earned, 511NY Rideshare partner organizations donated to local community groups. Our members earned 220 badges across the two-week drive, which allowed us to facilitate donations of:
“Thank you for the socks donation. The children will love them!”
– Children’s Aid NYC
"[Thank you for the Matzo Project donation,] offering high-quality and tasty donated products to our emergency food network, helping thousands of individuals and families across New York City."
- The Met Council
"Thank you so much [for the Raw Rev energy bars,] our recipients really enjoyed them."
- The Connected Chef
Thank you again for your participation in the Smart Travel Badge Drive - the entire 511NY Rideshare team looks forward to hosting more similar initiatives!
