Try Transit

Try public transit as an alternative to driving alone

Have you thought about changing the way you commute, but don’t know where to start? Many office spaces and schools have started in-person work again, and traffic congestions levels in San Mateo County have already reached pre-pandemic levels again. Now is the perfect time to try public transit!

Commuters or students traveling to or from San Mateo County are eligible for free tickets to try SamTrans, Caltrain, or San Francisco Bay Ferry if they currently drive alone to work. To qualify:

  • Must be at least 18 years old
  • Commute at least two times per week
  • Apply for tickets on a transit mode that is practical for your commute
  • Not currently using public transit

Please note that due to the limited number of tickets available, there is a limit of one Try Transit incentive per household. To request tickets, fill out a short application form and we’ll send you tickets if you qualify. Tickets are subject to availability and may have usage restrictions.

To apply, choose from one of the options below:
