Public transit is a great option for commuters. When you use public transportation you can:

  • Save thousands of dollars a year in auto expenses (gas, insurance, maintenance, tolls, etc.)
  • Work or relax during your commute and reduce your stress
  • Use the new found time to read, talk with friends, or get some work done
  • Get to work and get home on time regardless of the weather and freeway traffic
  • Help reduce pollution and overcrowded roads
  • Use pre-tax dollars to pay for your public transportation expenses

Please note that this program  is for one Try Transit incentive, per household, and only while tickets are available.
