511 rings in the year

The nifty and free 511 Trip Planner tool is a trusted friend that helps plot out 650,000 Bay Area public transit journeys each month. The new Enhanced Trip Planner does that and more. The updated tool gives travelers side-by-side comparisons of transit and driving options. It compares routes, time and cost, and includes a carbon calculator to show the tripsÕ environmental impact.

ThatÕs not all 511 has in store for the start of 2014. Clean commuters are eligible for a special promotion. Users who track their clean commutes -- via carpool, vanpool, bike, foot or transit -- in January and February may win tickets to San FranciscoÕs Walt Disney Museum.

To participate:
Visit the Rideshare page at and log in to your 511 RideMatch account. (If you arenÕt currently registered. follow the new user registration process.)

Track your clean commute trips to work in My Trip Diary. For help registering for a 511 RideMatch account, or with using your online Trip Diary, call 511 and say ÒRideshareÓ and ask for a Rideshare Operator.
