MTC Partners With Scoop to Promote Carpooling

The New Year is a great time to start a new habit to save time and money by carpooling. MTC's 511 Carpool Program is offering new carpoolers a free ride or a driver bonus when carpooling with Scoop, an easy-to-use carpool app. Sitting in your car alone lamenting the carpoolers going faster in the HOV or express lanes? Now is the time to add a passenger! Get more information about the 511 Carpool Scoop incentive.

Download Scoop from the App Store or Google Play, set up an account, enter your schedule and get your first ride free or a driver bonus with the promo code Carpool511. Scoop will match you with your neighbors going to or from your work location. For the morning commute, enter your trip by 9 p.m. the night before, and get your match at 9:30 p.m. For the evening commute, enter your trip by 3 p.m. and get your match at 3:30 p.m. Scoop makes it easy to carpool with in-app driver and rider location details and communication channels.

Riders pay the driver for rides seamlessly through the app, and 511Carpool will pay for your first ride, so give it a try! Drivers earn money for providing rides and 511Carpool is providing a driver bonus for your first ride given. The cost to ride with Scoop is much less than a service like Uber or Lyft. It’s traditional carpooling aided by technology. Scoop has over 60,000 users operating throughout the Bay Area. You can join this growing community today, free of charge. See MTC’s 511 traveler information site for more info.
