Sharing The Ride Is On Us!
If you join or form a new carpool, Allston Brighton TMA will provide you with Free Gasoline! Grab your spouse, your neighbor or a coworker, and commute together to cut your commuting costs in half. Don’t know of anyone to share a ride with? We can match you with someone who lives and works near you. Allston Brighton TMA provides subsidized gas cards to qualified individuals who carpool to work. You pick your carpool buddy and we'll save you over $150 a year on the cost of fuel.
Who is eligible?
Any employee or tenant of an Allston Brighton TMA member company currently driving alone is eligible. Participation is extended to commuters who transitioned travel modes from driving alone to carpooling within the last three months. Proof of driving alone (parking pass, receipt, etcand completion of an initial survey will be required prior to final registration.
Existing carpools adding a passenger are eligible if the new rider was previously driving alone. Proof will be required prior to final registration.
Sharing the ride is flexible
Monday you have soccer practice, Thursday’s night school, and Friday you are headed straight to the slopes or the beach for the weekend. We understand that your schedule may change, so you don’t need to commit to travel together every day. To participate, you simply need to share the ride 2 times per week.
You decide what works best for you.
How does it work?
Participating carpools receive a $50 prepaid gas card each month, for a total of three months. At the end of the month complete a usage report and your next month's gas card will be sent to you.
What if I need to get home unexpectedly?
Allston Brighton TMA gives you commuting piece of mind with the Guaranteed Ride Home (GRH) program. Need to leave work due to an unexpected event? No problem! Through GRH you receive up to six free rides per year.
