Time to try a new way to get around?  Not sure which option is best for you? Explore your alternatives to driving alone.

Benefits for You

Driving to work alone can be expensive and stressful. Choosing an alternative to driving alone provides real benefits to you.
Health Benefits: Sharing the responsibility of driving with a carpool partner helps relieve stress and builds camaraderie. Biking and walking to work lets you combine your workout with your commute. Using an alternative to driving alone makes the task of getting to and from work a lot more enjoyable.

Saving Time and Money: Reducing commuting miles saves money on gasoline, car maintenance and insurance. In fact, riding or driving with someone else can cut commuting costs in half. Work options such as telework or a compressed work week give you more blocks of uninterrupted time for your work, yourself and your family. Alternatives to driving alone such as carpooling, vanpooling or riding the bus allow you to catch up on paperwork, read or even sleep.

Living Better: When you leave your car at home just a few days per week, you help improve our environment and quality of life. You are also taking steps in making a positive impact on climate change.

Incentives and Rewards: Get rewarded for carpooling, vanpooling, riding the bus, bicycling or walking instead of driving alone. Choose your Reward Program below.
