Commuter Testimonials

M, Sheraton, Transit Pass

I'm thinking of going back to school with the money I save from the TMA's transit pass.

Hotel Employee, Lyft Program

What a blessing this program has been for me, and I am very grateful to have the option of using Lyft. I live equally distant between the Palo Alto and Menlo Park train stations, and the Lyft credit makes it possible to get to my work in Downtown Palo Alto without a car. Thank you so much.

 K, Il Fornaio, Transit Pass

I get off late at night and the Caltrain whizzes you home. Having another $80/month makes a big difference, like the City is looking out for you. It's also convenient that I only have to tag on and off one trip and then not the rest of the month. That way if I'm running late for the train I can just jump on. That extra minute makes a difference between catching the train or missing it.

Omar, Zareen's, Cal Ave Program

Hear from Omar Chavez, a compelling telling of how he moved across the Bay from Hayward to Bayshore to take advantage of the Caltrain commute. When the Cal Ave pilot ended, Omar was considering buying a car, since driving was now cheaper for him than the Caltrain ticket.

The transit pass program is now extended to Cal Ave and Omar was the first to sign up!
