Teton Rideshare Announces Summer Cash Incentives

 

If you are a commuter frustrated with heavy summer traffic, there is now a social and profitable solution. Beginning on July 10th, Teton Rideshare will launch an incentive program to reduce traffic through ridesharing. The aim of the program is to encourage community engagement and participation. “With local traffic getting out of hand, we want to encourage a community-driven solution to a community problem. Transportation solutions need to be multi-faceted, and Teton Rideshare offers an additional avenue for commuters looking to save money and reduce traffic,” says Max Ludington, co-founder of Teton Rideshare.

 

From July 10th to August 10thparticipants will receive $1 in compensation for scheduling a carpool as either a rider or a driver (maximum $2 per day) on the ridesharing app, Duet. Participants will receive compensation regardless of a successful carpool match. Compensation will be awarded as a Duet point, which can be redeemed as cash.

 

Additionally, from July 10th to September 30th, all passengers will ride for free.

 

Drivers, as always, will be paid based on the carpool distance. For example, compensation from Victor to Jackson is approximately $6. Already participating in a regular carpool? No problem; organize your carpool through Duet to take advantage of our incentive program.
