Flex Your Commute

Flex Your Commute improves air quality and reduces greenhouse gases by encouraging commuter choice.

Transit, bicycling, carpooling, walking, and telework all eliminate drive-alone commutes. Flex Your Commute encourages a Bay Area wide transportation shift from driving alone to sustainable commuting. Flex Your Commute strives to create a culture of commuting innovation in the Bay Area.
