Rediscover your commute!

Marin Commutes Fall 2021 Campaign

Start fresh with new habits and routines by making more green trips this fall for your chance to win prizes! Green trips include traveling anywhere you need to go on transit, carpooling, vanpooling, walking, biking, the ferry or even saving a trip by working remotely. Whether you’re commuting, going to school, running an errand, or traveling for any other reason, think twice before you drive alone — by taking a green trip instead you can stay active, save money, reduce pollution, and win prizes!

The campaign will run October 11 – November 21, 2021 and is open to anyone 18 years or older who commutes to, from, or within Marin County for any activity using a commute alternative to driving alone, such as carpool, vanpool, train, public bus, ferry, bicycle, walking, or working remotely. Participants logging their green commute trips in the My Marin Commute System (powered by Ride Amigos) have a chance to win weekly raffle prizes or a grand prize raffle. Participants can increase their chances of winning by logging more green trips and completing special achievement categories such as referring a friend, providing a testimonial, or following Marin Commutes on social media during the campaign. Weekly prizes will consist of $25 gift cards and Marin Commutes branded Hydro Flasks©. The grand prize raffles will offer participants a chance of winning a gift card valued at $50 – $250.
