SLOCOG (Peter Williamson):

“SLOCOG presented on their varied uses of the Point Programs module, including:

        • An employer subsidized Visa Reward program administered by SLOCOG that pays employees $0.50 per day for their smart commutes (currently using iCard Solutions as the card provider),
        • A commuter store (beta stage) that encourages employees at companies not participating in the Visa Reward program to log commutes,
        • The administration of SLOCOG’s ERH (or GRH) program.

SLOCOG also went over a few uses for the Events module, including: Volunteer events, Single trip matching, High traffic event marketing sponsorship.

SBCAG (Lori La Riva):

      • City requirement for hospital expansion in Santa Barbara residential neighborhood: Offer a monthly $75 parking cash-out for employees who don’t drive to work a minimum of 80% of the time. (The value for part-time employees is halved: $37.50.)
      • The RideAmigos incentive module allows for the network administrator to create individual monthly incentives based on a percentage of eligible commute days. Employees can enroll monthly and if they reach 80% at the end of the month they can claim their cash-out.

DRCOG (Colleen Miller):

      • Currently using the Events platform to encourage ski carpools to eight area ski resorts. Page on explains how to set up a carpool  for skiing and then link drectly to  Promote it via social media and partner channels.
      • Partnering with a number of local annual events (starting with a huge 10k and a marathon).  In 2016 we’ll work on a pilot program with these events and then evaluate participation and survey participants and event organizers to see how we can improve.
      • Uses for the Events platform are very far reaching and could encompass a wide range of events.
