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.

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.

Meet Kathy, the Senior Director of Communications at SUNY Farmingdale University.
Eight years ago, Kathy started partnering with 511NY Rideshare to create a better environment for SUNY Farmingdale students. She worked with 511NY Rideshare to launch a commuter portal, making it easy for their students to explore sustainable commute modes, including getting matched with other students to form carpools.
Kathy advises all Universities to partner with 511NY Rideshare:
“It’s a no-lose situation. We invite 511NY Rideshare to come to our orientations and to other on-campus events so our students can learn about the program. We encourage all of our students to join 511NY Rideshare because we want them to focus on learning, rather than worrying about how they’re going to get to campus.”
