City and County of San Francisco Municipal Employee Programs (Transportation)


The City and County of San Francisco (CCSF) offers a variety of sustainable transportation programs for municipal employees to make walking, biking, transit, carpool, and rideshare the easiest choice. San Francisco aims to have 80% of all trips made through sustainable modes by 2030. Help us reach this goal by maximizing your use of these programs:


Commuter Benefits: Save hundreds of dollars on your transit and vanpool expenses each month. Enroll in the Pre-Tax Commuter Benefits Program (WageWorks) to join your fellow CCSF employees who are collectively saving $1,000,000 a year. Learn more about Commuter Benefits.

Bikeshare: As a City employee, get $25 off an annual membership with Bay Wheels (PDF)! You’ll have unlimited access to thousands of bikes, and the first 45 minutes of every ride are free! (Bay Wheels)

Free Clipper Card: City employees can receive a free Clipper Card to provide easy access to all public transportation systems in the Bay Area. Once you receive your Clipper Card, you can now add your Clipper Card to your smartphone through Apple or Google Pay. Request a free Clipper Card.


Emergency Ride Home: Do you commute sustainably to work? If a personal or family emergency strikes on a day that you did, we have you covered. Get to where you need to go as soon as you can, save the receipt, and we’ll reimburse your ride with Emergency Ride Home.

CityCycle: Get fit, reduce stress, and have fun by biking to your meetings. CityCycle is a free shared bike fleet available at City departments. Talk to your department’s CityCycle Coordinator for information on how bicycle availability and reservations. Learn more about CityCycle.

Rideshare: Save on costs and time with flexible or scheduled carpool and vanpool options. Easy to use apps such as Scoop and Waze offer flexibility for one-way, round-trip and sporadic carpooling. Learn more about Rideshare at
