Not sure what might work for you – or need advice? We’re happy to help! We can evaluate your individual needs and help you sort out the options. Take a look at what’s currently offered:
lyft for short trips
Sometimes, using transit isn’t an option. If your shift in Downtown Palo Alto starts early or ends late here’s how we can help!
We’ll help with subsidized Lyft shared rides from your home directly to your job. Leave your car (and the stress of parking) home!
How it works
Each month, The Palo Alto TMA will pay up to $10 per ride for up to 15 rides per month, so you can take advantage of your annual transit pass!
Credits will appear in your Lyft app, good for work trips between Downtown and the Greater Palo Alto Area Zone.
You’ll be eligible to receive credits every month through the end of the year.
If you can take the bus for one part of your commute, the TMA may also be able to give you a monthly bus pass in addition to the Lyft credits.
