Save time and money by turning your solo drive into a carpool with the Scoop app! Qualified Contra Costa commuters will receive $2 off their ride every time they use Scoop. (Use the code CCTA05 to get an additional $5 in Scoop credit – the combined $7 in credits covers the cost of most first rides.)
The Basics: You provide Scoop the time you plan to travel along with your starting point and destination, and the app connects you with another commuter headed your way. If you’re traveling across the Bay Bridge, the app connects you with two people. Contra Costa residents who work in the following cities can use Scoop to commute by carpool:
Pleasanton · San Francisco · South San Francisco · Oakland · Fremont
Palo Alto · Sunnyvale · San Jose · Foster City · San Mateo · Santa Clara
The Details: Download the Scoop app using the buttons below, then enter your home and work locations. On a trip-by-trip basis, you’ll enter your commute details. At the scheduling deadline (9 pm the night before the morning commute or 3:30 pm the day of the afternoon commute) Scoop will connect commuters to create safe and efficient carpools. All payments are handled inside the app, as well as directions and contact details for the trip, and your ride home is guaranteed. The cost of the average trip using Scoop is between $6 and $8.
Special Offer: 511 Contra Costa wants to encourage people to leave their cars at home, so if you use Scoop to carpool from Contra Costa to one of the cities listed above, we’ll pay $2 of every trip you make as a passenger.
Getting the $2 discount is easy:
1. Download the Scoop app
2. Enter your account information
3. Use the Scoop app to carpool
That’s it! If you have a Contra Costa address, the app will automatically reduce your trip cost by $2 anytime you’re a carpool passenger.
