Five Free Rides gives new Scoop and Waze Carpool riders the opportunity to experience the ease of carpooling with improved technology. The Scoop and Waze Carpool applications both provide matches, scheduling, and seamless payment.
The promotion starts on February 1 and will run through June 30, 2019. New Scoop users can download the app and the free rides will automatically be placed into their account. New Waze Carpool users should download the app and enter promo code CARPOOL to activate the free rides. On both apps, the offer expires two weeks from download.
Carpooling can reduce peak hour traffic on well-traveled highways and bridges to the region's job hubs. The Bay Area's busiest travel times align with Scoop and Waze Carpool's height of trip requests and available matches, ideal for a new carpooler looking to improve their work commute.
Five Free Rides is a collaboration between the public and private sectors designed to benefit commuters and reduce congestion, a shared goal. MTC is the regional transportation planning, financing and coordinating agency for the nine-county San Francisco Bay Area.
The Bay Area Carpool Program is an initiative of the Metropolitan Transportation Commission. Five Rides Free is funded by MTC with grants from FHWA and the Bay Area Air Quality Management District.
