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.

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.

Student transit ticket program

K-12 Students who live or go to school in Danville are eligible to receive two (2) 12-ride County Connection transit tickets at no cost. These tickets are meant to provide students with an alternate way to get to or from school by using public transit.


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.

Walk, Bike or Carpool

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.
