Partners agree to select an employee to serve as the Employee Transportation Coordinator (ETC). The ETC represents the employer and participates in Commute Options activities, including training, the Commute Options/Get There Challenge, and other promotional events. The ETC must have a Get There Oregon account and be our point of contact for rewards distribution and promotions.
Get There Rewards Program:
The Rewards Program provides a $20 gift card to employees who log points tracking their commute options. Once the employee earns 45 points on Get There Oregon, they can redeem them for their reward. Electronic rewards requests go directly to employees’ email. Physical gift cards are mailed once per month to the ETC for distribution. Check out the Tango Card choices here.

Is carpooling safe? / is ridematching safe?
- Safety concerns shouldn’t keep people from seriously considering carpools, while these concerns shouldn’t be dismissed, they also shouldn’t stand in the way of saving some money, reducing carbon emissions, and making your commute more relaxing. We recommend communicating by email with a potential carpool partner and once you feel comfortable, meet in a public place for a trial run. You can also check out Facebook or LinkedIn profiles, if they’re public, to get a sense of who you might be spending your commute with.
What is a carpool?
- A carpool is simple. It’s an arrangement between two or more people to make a regular journey in a single car, typically with each person taking turns to drive the others. However, other carpools have just one driver who drives each commute. There are no hard and fast rules – it’s up to the individual circumstances of those in your carpool. A good rule of thumb is to discuss and agree upon the cost-sharing arrangements beforehand. Determine what the driving arrangements will be, if there is an equal split in driving responsibilities, and the cost-sharing arrangements.
Where will the pick-ups be?
- Sometimes the driver will pick up passengers right at their homes; but oftentimes commuters will meet up at a predetermined location, like a “Park and Ride” or another convenient parking lot.
