Ridesharing is a great way to beat traffic congestion on the way to work, reduce auto emissions and cut commute costs. Now, you can also get a chance to win one week of free breakfast or a cupcake truck party if you carpool during the month of May! Start carpooling and start enjoying your commute. 511 works with thousands of Bay Area employers by offering free commute assistance and information on alternatives to driving alone.

Spring Carpool Challenge
The Spring Carpool Challenge is underway. Register your carpool with 511 between now and May 30th and you will be eligible to participate in this special promotion. Participation is easy. Simply register your carpool team at: https://rideshare.511.org/survey/CarpoolReg/, track three or more trips a week in the 511 Trip Diary throughout May and you can win.

Some Delicious Ways to Win
Each week a drawing will be held and an entire carpool can win a week's worth of breakfast. At the end of May, the company with the most employees fulfilling their pledge will win free cupcakes and lemonade from a cupcake food truck for all of the company's registered carpoolers! Carpooling is a great way to beat traffic congestion, reduce auto emissions and cut your commute costs. It is also a sustainable alternative to drive-alone commuting.
