Rideshare Incentives

Get the most out of the County's Employee Rideshare Program by earning rewards and incentives by tracking your work commute throughout the year on our ride-matching and rewards website, SBtrip.

Please note that pursuant to IRC 74 & IRC 3121(a)(20), the value of an award or prize given by an employer to an employee is considered taxable wages and may be subject to Federal Income tax.

Rewards and incentives are earned by logging eligible rideshare mode trips to or from work. Log up to two trips per day. If you use multiple rideshare modes, the mode that covers the longest distance for that trip should be logged. Sign-up at SBtrip to start logging your trips and claiming your rewards! 

Incentives - Effective April 1, 2019

In addition to the incentives listed below, the County also offers pre-tax payroll deductions for the vanpool and transit pass programs. Vanpools also qualify for additional subsidies to help lower the cost of participation.

You can use the points to redeem for various items, or to purchase a digital raffle ticket to be entered to win awesome prizes.  The items available at the SBtrip Points Store change out quarterly. Earn one point per trip for most eligible commute modes, but earn points faster when you bike, walk or take transit!  Biking and walking trips are worth 1.4 points, and transit is worth 1.2 points.
