Leave the Car at Home Too

Get $50 for Leaving the Car at Home

As offices and worksites reopen, many Bay Area workers will be trading their sweatpants and slippers for a daily commute. Instead of jumping back into your car, 511 Contra Costa will give you $50 to get to work another way.

How Does It Work?

If you commute by driving alone or using Uber or Lyft, you can receive $50 if you travel to work on Capitol Corridor, BART, a bus, or in a carpool instead. To qualify for the incentive, you only need to do this one time, but we think you’ll like your new commute enough to try it again. Program and eligibility rules apply.

In addition to the $50 reward, you can also enter the Bonus $100 Grand Prize drawing when you share a photo from your commute. Learn more when you apply.
