About FreeRide

The City of Santa Rosa’s Transit Department, through a Transportation Fund for Clean Air grant, has developed and manages an incentive program to reduce single occupant vehicle trips. The goal is to decrease motor vehicle emissions, traffic congestion, parking challenges and improve air quality in Santa Rosa.

To participate in this program, businesses in the Santa Rosa city limits must designate a Transportation Coordinator who, through this Web site can register their company and sign-up employees who want to participate. Registered employees can receive great incentives by reducing their trips to and from work by carpooling with other registered participants, walking, riding a bike or taking the bus to work. All they need to do is, once registered, logon to this Web site and enter their commutes in their monthly commute calendar. To qualify for earned incentives, entries must be completed by the 7th of the following month.


Select Option 1 or Option 2 as your monthly incentive.
