Omaha Carpooling Program Milestone

An Omaha carpooling program has reached a milestone. The city says it's reached its goal of getting 1,000 people involved in the Metro Rideshare Program.

The program passed that mark one month earlier than planned — possibly due to soaring gasoline prices of late.

To celebrate the program's success, the city is giving the 1,000th person who registered a $100 gas card.
