Quotes from some Weekly Prize Winners

“I’d like to add how much I enjoy the public transportation options through Commute.org and its connections to the rest of the Bay Area transit agencies! My commute is from Oakland to Burlingame 4 times a week and it would not be possible without AC transit, BART, and the BPT shuttle.”-Victoria, $50 Clipper Card winner (pictured)

“I’ve been enjoying the nicer weather lately and getting to avoid traffic during my bike commutes, and the Commute.org incentives and appearance of wildflowers are an added bonus!” -Diana, $25 e-gift card winner

“What a pleasant surprise! Thank you, Commute.org!” – Robert, $50 Clipper Card winner. A daily BART and shuttle commuter

“I love taking Caltrain to work. It’s much more relaxing than sitting in traffic. I get to work with less stress, plus I won a prize from Commute.org!” – Kristiann, touchscreen gloves, and a beanie winner

“Biking to school helps me start the day with fresh air and 20 minutes of enjoyable exercise in the safety of a well-maintained bike line.” -Bethany, Fire 7 Tablet winner
