The Carpool 2.0 program rewards all forms of carpooling, from matching with your co-workers to using carpool apps to find carpool partners. Carpool 2.0 aims to increase local carpool ridership during peak travel periods, therefore reducing single occupancy vehicles, traffic congestion, greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and the need for parking within San Mateo County. By carpooling, commuters can save time, money, and the environment.

The Future of Corporate Leadership:
How Transparency Is Key to Innovation
Menlo Park Rotary Club, Impossible, and Menlo College are hosting a networking event and panel to discuss transparency in the workplace and its importance to building a successful business model. Several studies have shown that transparency is the number one factor determining workplace happiness, which is directly linked to trust and out of the box thinking - two important drivers of innovation. As consumers are increasingly concerned about such issues as fair labor, sustainable resourcing, and the environment, transparency across the value chain has become key to regain trust and to create a competitive edge.
