Who is eligible?

Participation is extended to commuters who transitioned travel modes from driving alone to carpooling within the last three months. Existing carpools adding a passenger are also eligible if the new rider was previously driving alone. Proof of driving alone (parking pass, receipt, etc.) will be required for final registration. 

Sharing the ride is flexible
