Spreading the Carpool Love! February 1-15, 2019


The City of Bend and Commute Options are pleased to introduce Carpool Love, a carpool incentive program running the first two weeks of February, 2019.

Carpool Love has been developed to help Deschutes county commuters explore their carpooling options and will reward carpoolers with great prizes and good feelings. Prizes include $200 from Ruffwear, Fat Tire Bike and snow gear rentals from Pine Mountain Sports, $100 Gift Card from the Old Mill District, $100 Downtown Bend Dollars and more

To get started, simply register at (the Oregon Department of Transportation’s free statewide ridematching website), then complete a survey (link below) and log at least of 6 days of carpool activity between February 1 and the 15th to be eligible for weekly prizes.

Participants will also receive a survey as part of the event and those who complete the survey and have logged a minimum of two days of carpool activity each week will be eligible to win weekly prizes. Additionally, carpoolers that have logged at least four carpool trips will be eligible for Grand Prize Drawings, to be awarded on February 18. Local businesses have donated prizes such as $200 gift card from Ruffwear, snow gear and fat bike rentals from Pine Mountain Sports, $100 from the Old Mill District, a gift certificate to Dad’s Hand Wash, 2 matching Hydroflask’s, and $100 in Downtown Bend Dollars.

Whether you are an experienced carpooler, or are just starting out, Carpool Love is for you

No carpool partner? No worries, we can help! Just create a ridematch trip in the Drive Less Connect to match up with partners. Contact them directly through the database to start carpooling! Your personal information remains private, because you decide how much of your information is visible to others. Between Redmond and Bend, there are thousands of people looking for a carpool partner just like you! Transportation options show the love for your community, your wallet, and the planet.

Get started and let the love flow!

Commute Options Carpool Love is sponsored by Ruffwear, Pine Mountain Sports, Old Mill District, Downtown Bend Business Association, Drive Less Connect, and ODOT.
