The following commuting programs and incentives are provided in partnership with Commuter Connections, a regional network of transportation organizations. Select the tabs below to read more about them.
Loudoun County residents and employees may register for two essential commuting programs:
The Ridesharing Program enables commuters to find other individuals who share similar commute routes and work hours to join or form a carpool or vanpool.
The Guaranteed Ride Home (GRH) Program supports commuters who use alternative transportation at least twice per week. Anyone who rides transit, carpools, vanpools, bikes or walks to work is eligible for up to six free rides home per year during unexpected emergencies, such as personal illness, a sick child, and unscheduled overtime.
The following commuting incentives encourage individuals to ride transit, form carpools or join vanpools:
CarpoolNow is a real-time mobile app for ridematching. Similar to ridehailing services (such as Uber or Lyft), except the driver is commuting to and from work and the passenger rides at no cost. Drivers receive a $10 incentive per trip, up to $600 per year.
IncenTrip is a mobile app offering eco-points for fuel-efficient driving, transit trips, carpool trips, bicycle trips and other environmentally friendly travel. Eco-points may be traded in for gift cards and other prizes.
Pool Rewards provides cash payments of up to $130 over a 90-day period for those who start or join a new carpool.
Flextime Rewards provides incentive payments to those who delay traveling during peak congestion periods in designated corridors in the region. Participants receive real-time notifications and are rewarded up to $8 per trip for delaying their departure.
