Commute Incentives

Anyone who commutes to or from Danville should look into the various commuter incentives offered by 511 Contra Costa. Anyone who commutes via public transit, carpool, vanpool, bike, or on foot may be eligible to take advantage of commuter incentives.

Electric bicycle rebate program

Buy a new e-bike and apply for a cash rebate of $150-$300! Rebates are reserved for adult (18+) residents of each city and unincorporated area of the county and will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis, one per household, until funding is exhausted.

Guaranteed Ride Home Program

Are you interested in walking, biking, carpooling or taking public transit to work, but worry about being stranded during an emergency? 511 Contra Costa provides “commuter insurance” for alternative commuters who need a ride home due to unexpected circumstances.

try transit program

Pledge to try riding the Contra Costa County Connection as an alternative to driving alone to/from work or campus and receive a pre-loaded $20 Clipper Card that you can use as electronic transit fare payment for all transit providers in the Bay Area.


511 Contra Costa will pay half of the commuting costs of first-time vanpool commuters and will pay vanpool drivers $1000 for starting a vanpool. To find a vanpool or to start one, please visit the 511 vanpooling page.

511 rewards alternative commuters with $25 for carpooling, walking, or biking to work. Want to learn more about carpooling? Try App-Based Carpooling (Lyft, Uber, Waze, Scoop, Duet) or app-free carpooling options such as Casual Carpool.
