WHAT: The Bay Area’s 7 million residents take more than 3.5 million car trips a day, which is the single largest source of pollution in the Bay Area. Much of these car trips are 2 miles or less, a short distance that could be walked or biked.

· Grand Prize: Dahon Mu Uno Folding Bike ($579 value)
· First Prize: $250 FasTrack pass and $100 Starbucks gift card
· Second Prize: One of 10 $100 Clipper passes, for use on AC Transit, BART, Caltrain, Golden Gate Transit and Ferry and all Muni vehicles
Entrants should explain in 60 seconds or less why and how they Spare the Air every day during their commute – whether it is by carpooling, taking public transit, telecommuting, biking, walking or doing something even more creative.
