NuRide, Inc. the nation's first incentive-based ridesharing network, announced today that Odyssey Cruises, which operates a luxury cruise vessel on the Potomac River, will sponsor thousands of commuters who share rides resulting in 100,000 fewer miles driven on roads throughout the Washington, DC, region. Participating commuters will earn $220 gift certificates that can be used for dinner and brunch cruises on the Odyssey III, the only vessel designed specifically to travel beneath the Potomac River's historic bridges.

Odyssey Cruises joins a growing list of sponsors supporting the Chevron 5,000,000 Mile Rideshare Challenge, a regional event that brings together commuters and corporations to alleviate traffic congestion, reduce air pollution, and save commuters money on gas.

"Odyssey has always been an active member of the communities we serve in Boston, Chicago, and of course, Washington, DC," said David Johnson, Sales and Marketing Manager of Odyssey Cruises. "From our vantage point on the Potomac, we witness firsthand the traffic congestion on the roads around us, and we want to reward NuRiders who are actively doing something about it."

"Anyone who has seen the Odyssey III knows what a truly unique experience it provides to the guests sailing along the Potomac River," said Rick Steele, Chief Executive Officer of NuRide. "This is an absolutely terrific reward for our members from a first-class company and community partner."

The Chevron 5,000,000 Mile Rideshare Challenge was launched in Washington D.C. on February 28, 2006. The event will involve over 5,000 commuters who will share rides resulting in 5,000,000 fewer miles driven and over 200,000 gallons of gasoline being conserved. To participate in the program, commuters use NuRide's innovative online ridesharing program to find other people going their way. The NuRide web site calculates the savings for each trip and awards participants with points for each confirmed ridesharing trip, which can then be redeemed with participating sponsors for gift cards, gift certificates, show tickets and various other rewards.
