COMMUTER CHOICE TRANSPORTATION FAIR



The power to choose is yours. Hacienda Business Park and the City of Pleasanton are pleased to sponsor a free major event where you can apply your power to choose to time and money saving commute opportunities. Here, attendees can learn from exhibitors about the complete range of transportation alternatives and related support programs to aid them in their commute. The Commuter Choice Transportation Fair, serving employees and residents throughout the Tri-Valley, is one of the largest events of its kind in the Bay Area.  

Event Date and Location
The Tri-Valley Commuter Choice Transportation Fair will be held on Thursday, October 4, between 10:30 am and 1:30 pm at the CarrAmerica Conference Center located at 4400 Rosewood Drive. Over fifty different exhibits will be available highlighting time- and money-saving commute options. The fair is divided into two parts. The first hour of the fair, from 10:30 am to 11:30 am, has been specifically designed for Employee Transportation Coordinators, or those who either facilitate a company’s transportation program or who oversee employee benefits programs including transportation incentives. Fair vendors will be available to answer questions and work with representatives on creating program options for their businesses. The second part of the fair, from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm, is for the general public. During this time, fair attendees will be able to connect with important resources that will aid them in getting to and from work using alternatives that can save both time and money.

Prizes! Prizes! Prizes! 
Admission to the Commuter Choice Transportation Fair is free. The first 500 people attending the fair will receive a free pedometer. Special drawings will be held to award prizes to attendees for learning about their transportation alternatives. Prizes include a variety of transportation giveaways including BART tickets, gift baskets, commute incentives and much, much more. The grand prize will be an exciting weekend getaway for two to Napa with a "Sip & Cycle Tour". There is no charge to enter the drawings and attendees need not be present to win.
