Interested in trying a different way of getting to work?
The Rideshare Incentive Program offers our members incentives to use a commuting alternative, including carpooling or vanpooling, public transportation (public bus, light-rail and/or commuter rail), walking, or bicycling. It’s a terrific way to avoid traffic congestion, save on gas, and reduce stress.
TRIP’s goal is to reduce SOV trips by people who work in Yolo County. While TRIP incentives will get you started short-term, the effects are longer lasting. Once commuters have “sampled” a different commute option, they are more likely to appreciate the benefits and continue after the incentive expires.
Only Yolo Commute members qualify for rideshare incentives.

The Guaranteed Ride Home Program (GRH) is your “safety net” in any rideshare or alternative transportation program.

You are eligible to use this program if your employer is a member of Yolo Commute and you do not drive alone to work at least 60 percent of your work week.

A credit/debit card will be necessary to initiate the rental; however, only Yolo Commute will be charged for the vehicle cost, less gas refill and optional insurance.

Electric-assist bicycles are a great way to commute or run errands while at work!
Yolo Commute is excited to offer members the E-Bike Loan program. With this program, Yolo Commute members can borrow one of three electric-assist bicycles we recently purchased with funding from the Yolo-Solano Air Quality Management District. We offer the following bicycles:
|(2) Specialized Turbo Como SL
|Yuba Kombi E5 Cargo
Purchased at discount from and expertly assembled by Davis-based Ken’s Bike-Ski-Board, what separates these from lower costs e-bikes is they provide a natural assist based on your pedal effort: more pedal force equals more assist. They also have higher quality brakes, drivetrain, and other components, making your ride that much more enjoyable.
The Specialized Turbo Como SL is great for single riders who want to try commuting by e-bike. No need to bring an extra set of clothes to work, you won’t need it as riding an electric assist bike allows you to use as much or little effort as you want.
The Yuba Kombi E5 is great for parents who want to try the “school drop-off” by bike before heading to work. It’s also good for carrying bulky or heavy items during the workday. With an extra stable kickstand, you can load the kiddos without tipping over. We even equipped it with padded seats and grab handles for the kids.
Yolo Commute knows that you may be hesitant to jump into buying an electric-assist bike. That’s why we offer our members these bikes to borrow so you can “try before you buy”.
If you would like to borrow one of these awesome electric-assist bicycles, Yolo Commute member representatives can contact us and we will deliver to your workplace. Note, we do not loan the bikes to individuals.
