Application and Usage Agreement

Submit this request and a copy of your monthly transit purchase receipt for reimbursement to:
Yolo TMA, P.O. Box 969, Woodland, CA 95776

This program is to promote new transit ridership.  The undersigned commuter, a qualified applicant, applies for the public transit incentive program administered by the Yolo TMA and attaches a copy of the receipt for monthly public transit fare for reimbursement.  Maximum reimbursement is $60 over a two-month period.

The Rideshare Incentive Program (TRIP) provides a financial incentive of $30 per month for two months to twenty (20) commuters who change their SOV commute pattern and purchase a transit pass valid on local service (Yolobus, Sacramento Regional Transit, Unitrans, Para transit or Capitol Corridor/Amtrak). Only one service payment per rider is allowed. 

TRIP participants who stay with their public transit (bus) for a period of one year and use their rideshare alternative at least ten (10) days per month, will receive a bonus incentive $75 and a $25 certificate to a local bookstore chosen by the Yolo TMA. 

TRIP participants who stay with their public transit (train) for a period of one year and use their rideshare alternative at least ten (10) days per month, will receive a bonus incentive of $75 and a certificate for a weekend-day round-trip excursion for two to San Francisco (from either Sacramento or Davis) aboard Amtrak (value estimated at $25).   

Submitting an application does not guarantee selection to receive subsidy.  Funding will be allocated to awardees based on available funds. The incentive will be awarded when the appropriate documentation has been verified by your Employee Transportation Coordinator and is received by the TMA.

Qualifying modes of public transit include bus, train and/or light-rail.
