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:

Transportation Discounts

Carshare: Get more miles for your money with discounted carshare access. Have the convenience of a car without the hassle and cost!

CityCycle: Get fit, reduce stress, and have fun by biking to your meetings. CityCycle is a free shared bike fleet available at departments throughout the city that can be reserved by employees as needed, with all accessories included. 

Rideshare: Find a match to carpool or vanpool with to work. Sharing the ride with just one other person will cut your commuting costs in half and with vanpools save with pre-tax benefits.  New apps offer flexibility for one-way, round-trip and sporadic carpooling.
