Get Paid to Carpool! How Cool is that!
Super duper Cool! The Peninsula Traffic Congestion Relief Alliance has a fantastic incentive program to reward groups of people who carpool into or out of San Mateo county. Details include the type of award depending on the car you drive. Standard Combustion engine vehicles and Hybrid owners receive gas cards, while combustion free owners receive gift certificates.
Commute.org is a fantastic resource for individuals who live or work in San Mateo county for alternative commute options. These programs that consolidate efforts make each individual effort that much more powerful, I'm looking to check out if Santa Clara county has such a program. If your county has such a program, please put it in the comments section.
