San Mateo County launched a new program on Thursday to promote carpooling and those who wish to participate can earn up to $100.
It’s a known fact that traffic around the Bay Area is terrible. Traffic along Highway 101 and Interstate 280 is congested in the morning and at night.
Caltrans has a longterm plan to realign lanes on Highway 101, but in the meantime, a coalition of agencies is trying to get people to carpool.
They launched Carpool 2.0 at that will allow people to be rewarded for carpooling.
The Bay Area Quality Management District also supports the plan. They say it not only reduces congestion but also improves air quality and reduces the amount of CO2 going into the air.
