RideShare Delaware Rewards Christiana Mall’s Employee Shuttle Riders

On Saturday December 3rd, the RideShare Delaware outreach team helped promote the Christiana Mall’s Employee shuttle. Earlier in the week, the outreach team dropped off flyers to the Mall’s larger employers to promote the shuttle’s schedule and inform mall employees that riders of the shuttle may be rewarded with prizes.From 7am to 9am, riders who parked at the Del Tech Stanton Campus and rode the shuttle to the Mall’s Panera Bread were greeted by our team members and rewarded with water bottles. Those riders were also given the opportunity to sign up for RideShare Delaware’s services .

Those who rode the shuttle and signed up for RideShare Delaware were put into a raffle to win a $25 Wawa gift card as our thanks for clean commuting to the worksite. The raffle winner was Corey Johnson, an employee at the Christiana’s Malls Apple Store.

The Christiana Mall is providing this employee holiday shuttle to help decrease congestion around the mall and enhance the customer experience. From Black Friday to the end of the year, the Mall parking lot is packed with cars and patrons all trying to squeeze in their holiday shopping. This leads to heavy congestion and scarce parking options for customers during peak shopping times. This was particularly noticeable on Black Friday when virtually every parking space at the Mall was filled (View the photo below).

We would like to thank Steven Chambliss, Senior General Manager of the Christiana Mall, for allowing RideShare Delaware to go onsite and promote this clean commute option to their employees. As always, we encourage all Christiana Mall employees and patrons to try to clean commute to work or to your seasonal shopping by carpooling, riding a bus, vanpooling, walking, or biking.
