Rideshare and Rehabiliate Your Commute like UCLA Health's Althea!

UCLA Health Employee Althea Nelson boards the Long Beach Transit bus

UCLA Health employee Althea Nelson rehabilitated her commute when she started taking Long Beach Transit to her job at the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center — and she's never looked back.

Riding public transportation has been just the prescription she needed for a better commute, offering this Bruin a reliable, convenient, and relaxing way to work. "I'm saving wear and tear on my car, and myself!"

Long Beach Transit is one of several transit agencies serving the campus. At UCLA, discounted passes are available for faculty, staff, and students ready to stop driving alone and upgrade their commute.

As Althea says, "You'll never know until you try it." This Rideshare Month, pledge to try transit, or some other alternative form of transportation like walking, biking, carpooling, or vanpooling, once in October for a chance to win a prize. It could be the start of a wonderful journey.
