Dress your car up for the holidays

This content is sponsored by Commuter Connections- ‘Pool Rewards Program

Holiday decorating isn’t just for your home! Spread holiday cheer everywhere you go by decorating your car. For those in the DC metro- get in the holiday spirit! By forming a carpool and using the HOV Lanes, commuters may reduce their time spent commuting. Plus, carpools with the requisite number of passengers ride free on all Express Lanes in Northern Virginia. Even more good news; new carpoolers are eligible for a cash payment through ‘Pool Rewards when they start or join a new carpool! If eligible, each carpool member can earn $2 per day ($1 each way) for each day they carpool to work over a consecutive 90-day period.

The current carpool incentive allows each one-time new participating carpooler to earn up to $130 over a 90-day period through a trip-tracking process. Start or join a vanpool and earn up to $200 every month, when you sign up for ‘POOL REWARDS. It pays to rideshare! Sign up for ‘Pool Rewards today to start earning cash. Visit https://tdm.commuterconnections.org/mwcog/, it’s free to join.
