Incentives

Incentives for commuters.

The CommuteSmart incentive programs are designed to help make the move to alternative commutes easier for everyone to get involved. Program details are subject to change at any time, but if changes occur participants will be notified.

GetGreen

GetGreen is a one time program that offers commuters $1 per day for everyday an alternative commute is taken in the first 90-days of participating in CommuteSmart. Each commuter is eligible to receive up to $70 during this period. Commuters are paid for each day they choose to carpool, telework, take transit, bike or walk to work. A minimum of 20 alternative commutes must be taken during the 90-day period to qualify for a check (this would equal a $20 check). Commuters must live or work in Jefferson or Shelby counties to be eligible. After you have completed the GetGreen program, you will automatically be enrolled into Commuter Club. Please register in our database before applying for GetGreen. Vanpool participates are not eligible for this program.

Commuter Club

Commuter Club is an ongoing quarterly program for "club members" that log at minimum 20 alternative commutes over a three-month period. Each carpooler is eligible to receive a $25 gift card during this period. Commuters that choose to carpool, telework, take transit, bike or walk to work are eligible. Commuters must live or work in Jefferson or Shelby counties to be eligible. Commuters participating in the GetGreen incentive will automatically move to Commuter Club after their 90-day period expires. Vanpool participates are not eligible for this program.
