With gasoline prices on the rise, 511 Rideshare has begun a promotion to boost carpooling that may be hard for some commuters to refuse. Start carpooling and start earning!

Rideshare Rewards
Earn rewards and enjoy time with friends and colleagues as you beat the rush hour with 511's Rideshare Rewards program. If you switch to carpooling and work in the nine-county Bay Area you can win free gas or grocery gift cards. You can earn $10 for every five days you carpool within a 90-day period, up to $100, and one lucky commuter will win $1,000 in gift cards in a grand prize drawing. The program is currently under way and will run until funds are depleted. This offer is "first come, first serve," so be sure to register for the Rideshare Rewards at: http://ridesharerewards.511.org/. If you would like help finding a carpool partner, be sure to take advantage of 511's free RideMatch Service by visiting: http://rideshare.511.org/ridematch/.
