Who is eligible?

Participation is extended to commuters who transitioned travel modes from driving alone to carpooling within the last three months. New riders joining an existing carpool 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. Reimbursements apply for purchases made in the same calendar year and must be submitted by December 16, 2024.

Sharing the ride is flexible

We understand that your schedule may change, so you don’t need to commit to carpooling every day. To participate in the program, you simply need to share the ride at least three days per week.

You decide what works best for you.

How does it work?

Participating individuals logging at least six trips per week earn a $15 prepaid gas card each month, for a total of three months. Each trip you log earns you points toward unlocking your gas card at the end of each month.

What happens after three months?

If you continue to carpool end of three months, keep tracking your trips in your GoMassCommute account to earn more fun prizes!
