The Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments Commuter Connections program is sponsoring a pilot project called “Pool Rewards” to encourage commuters who drive alone to try carpooling. If eligible, drivers can earn $2 a day ($1 each way) for each day they carpool to work over a consecutive 90-day period. The maximum incentive for the 90-day trial period is $130 in exchange for providing information online about the new commute and completing surveys about the experience.
This trial offer is only valid through March 31 to a limited number of commuters.
For more information, visit the Commuter Connections website. The County’s Commuter Services program also offers ridesharing assistance to residents and commuters working in Montgomery County. Visit their website or call 240-773-2989.
