Commute Alternatives Program

The County of San Mateo doesn’t just talk about using active transportation, we also walk the walk! Through the Commute Alternatives Program, the Office of Sustainability provides cash subsidies to county employees who commute to work by public transit, vanpool, carpool, bike or by walking. We also provide resources for our Emergency Ride Home program, carpool-only parking facilities, and bike lockers.
