Aside from benefiting the environment, public transit offers commuters a chance to relax during their commutes. Commuters who drive alone and choose to switch to commuting by way of a local transit service (Yolobus, Yuba-Sutter Transit, Sacramento Regional Transit, Unitrans, Paratransit, or Capitol Corridor/Amtrak) may be eligible to receive financial incentives through The Rideshare Incentive Program (TRIP). Qualified applicants will receive a financial incentive of $30 per month for two months towards the purchase a monthly transit pass.

TRIP participants, who commute by bus for a period of one year and at least 10 days per month, will receive a $75 bonus incentive and a $25 certificate to a local bookstore chosen by the Yolo TMA.
