Yolo Commute is proud to present its flagship program, The Rideshare Incentive Program (TRIP).

The Rideshare Incentive Program is designed to reward commuters who try other means of commuting than the single occupant vehicle (SOV) and by changing daily commute habits. TRIP participants earn financial incentives for a two or three-month period to use a rideshare alternative, including carpooling, vanpooling and mass transit (public bus, light-rail and/or commuter rail). Commuters who change their personal SOV driving habit commute pattern by switching to bicycle and/or walking are also included. At the end of a one-year period there will be an additional incentive for those who have stayed with their commute choice. It’s a terrific way to avoid traffic congestion, save on gas and feel better by taking away some commute stress.

The goal of TRIP is to minimize single occupant vehicle trips in and through Yolo County. Although TRIP incentives are short-term – two or three months – the effects are longer lasting. Once commuters have “sampled” ridesharing, they are likely to appreciate its benefits, such as lower overall transportation costs and less commute stress, and continue to rideshare even when the incentive expires.

TRIP objectives include providing financial and tangible incentives to commuters who change their commute patterns and use a recognized alternative to driving alone. The program is strong on commuter choice education.

Only MEMBERS of Yolo Commute qualify for rideshare incentives.

Employers participate in TRIP by offering the incentives as part of their employee benefits package. A description of the program and the employer’s responsibilities are provided.
