Yolo TMA Incentive Programs
Yolo TMA is proud to present TRIP: The Rideshare Incentive Program (TRIP), funded by Yolo-Solano Air Quality Management District.
The Rideshare Incentive Program is designed to incentivize and reward commuters who try other means of commuting than single occupant vehicle 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 very likely to appreciate its benefits, such as lower overall transportation costs and less commute stress, and continue to rideshare even when the incentive expires (long-term goal).
Objectives include providing financial and tangible incentives to commuters who change their commute patterns and use a recognized alternative to the SOV and providing commuter choice education.
Employers participate in TRIP by offering the incentives as part of their employee benefits package. A description of the program and employers responsibilities is provided.
