Commuter Programs

Contra Costa Centre’s Commuter Programs offer employees cash incentives, subsidies and services to offset the costs of commuting, provide transit alternatives and benefit our community by alleviating traffic congestion. A variety of programs including carpools, vanpools, bike-to-work, walk-to-work, BART and bus ridership are provided to the Centre’s 6,000 workers, resulting in a 30% reduction in single-occupancy vehicles commuting to the area. Additionally, “Guaranteed Ride Home” is a service provided by 511 Contra Costa which ensures that any commuter who needs to get home due to a family emergency will be guaranteed a ride home quickly. For more information about these programs, please contact Contra Costa Centre Association at (925) 935-6337.
