Ride Green - Marin Commute Alternatives Program

The RideGreen Commute Alternatives Program aims to address the greenhouse gas impacts of County of Marin employees driving to work alone. In October 2016, the Board of Supervisors approved the program to empower employees to ride green and save directly on commute costs by using environmentally conscious alternatives to single occupancy vehicles.

Get involved! You can easily become a champion of the environment by making changes to the way you commute. And the County has dedicated resources to support your effort. To help further your commitment to the environment, the RideGreen program was designed to provide you monetary incentives and resources to help you take transit, carpool or bike to work.
