San Mateo County

Resource Team

The San Mateo County Spare the Air Resource Team is working to reduce traffic congestion and greenhouse gas emissions by promoting carpooling, vanpooling, shuttles, public transit, and biking – anything but driving alone!

Active Trips Incentive - Trips to meetings and events are opportunities to share a ride, take transit, bike, or walk. The Active Trips Incentive is a fun and easy way to encourage people to Spare the Air by using alternatives to driving alone to any event or meeting.  

The Spare the Air Team is looking for “promoters” – people who organize or promote meetings and events that take place within San Mateo County. Promoters let their attendees know that they can be entered into a drawing to win prizes, provided by the San Mateo County Spare the Air Resource Team, just for taking an active trip to the meeting or event. If you would like to promote the Active Trips Incentive at your meeting or event, view the Active Trips Promoter Guide to see how to get started! 

Pool Party! –The Spare the Air Team is partnering with on an event for San Mateo County employers and Employee Transportation Coordinators. Attendees will learn about carpool and vanpool incentives from employers throughout the county and will hear an update on managed lanes by keynote speaker Mr. Tony V. Harris, Managing Partner of pointC and former Chief Deputy Director of Caltrans. This is an excellent networking opportunity with employer representatives from many different industries. RSVP through Eventbrite. More info can be found at
