Commuter Connection
Commuter Connection #52

CA$H IN - get your bonus now!

You have two ways to "cash in" on our upcoming carpool promotion in October:

  • Drivers who commute with empty seats can get most of their commute costs covered; non-drivers/passengers can get to work for around 25-cents a mile.

  • Both drivers and passengers can then "cash in" by earning enough points to win up to $500.

It's all possible through a new app called Carzac - it works like Uber, only its cheaper and is only for work-related trips (commuting or off-site meetings.)

Download the App now and receive 25 "early signing" bonus points and be in-the-know for other bonus point opportunities through the end of September.
