Bicycle to Work Rewards
The Bicycle to Work Rewards Program encourages bicycle commuting by rewarding those who choose to ride their bicycle to /from work. Bike commuters help reduce traffic congestion, improve air quality, and make our communities safer - all while enjoying the health benefits and fun of riding a bike.
How does the Bicycle to Work Rewards Program work? Commuters who live or work in San Mateo County can receive up to $100 when they log their bicycle commutes on the STAR platform (my.commute.org) by connecting a Strava account for automatic trip tracking. After clicking "join program" under "rewards" in STAR and using Strava to track bicycle commutes, commuters start earning rewards. Participants can unlock a $25 e-gift card to their choice of over 75 retail or nonprofit donation options after 10 days of bicycling to/from work and clicking "claim" in STAR (up to 4 times for a total of $100). Note: if you use your bicycle for just the final portion of your commute to work or first portion of your commute home (e.g., between a transit station and your worksite), it will count toward the reward.
Program Rules: Bicycle commutes must start or end in San Mateo County. Trips must be tracked using the Strava app and automatically reported to the STAR platform via the connected app option * to be eligible for the rewards. The STAR platform will only count Strava trips that start or end at the same work address commuters have saved in their STAR profile. There is a limit of four rewards ($100 total) per person. All reward claims are subject to verification. Program runs 7/1/2020 through 12/31/2021 or until funds are depleted.
*Be sure to authorize my.commute.org to access both public and private activities when connecting a Strava account.
