Plus, Commute Club members are automatically entered in weekly drawings from October through December (join by or remain a member through Dec. 6), offering these great prizes:

* Restrictions apply. Please see full eligibility requirements. Participants must live off campus, be on campus at least 20 hours a week, and work at a site that requires a Stanford parking permit to park (if employee), or be a registered student who meets minimum unit requirements. Evening- or night-shift employees and individuals who live on-campus are ineligible for the Commute Club. Employees: Be sure to get your supervisor's approval before changing your work schedule.

Permit-Return Promotion offers $100, $75, $50, or $25

Those who have a long-term "A," "C," or “MC” parking permit have four options to participate in the Fall permit-return promotion. In addition to up to $300 per year in Clean Air Cash or Carpool Credit, this promotion offers a "bonus" reward of $100, $75, $50 or $25 to eligible commuters for returning their long-term Stanford parking permit and switching to alternative transportation. A longer commitment provides a higher reward.

If you’re driving, Capri could reward your off-peak driving or bike and walk commutes

Capri (Congestion And Parking Relief Incentives) is a Stanford research and incentive program designed to reward university commuters for shifting their driving commute away from peak times or biking and walking for their commutes.

Commuters with Stanford parking permits can sign up for Capri, then avoid main campus vehicle arrivals between 8 a.m. and 9 a.m. and departures between 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. Each arrival or departure in the one-hour period before or after the peak times receives credit. Commuters can also earn credits by biking and walking to or from campus.

Redeem credits by playing an online game, which offers multiple chances to win $1 to $50. Learn more and enroll in Capri.

Resident Student Pledge

Resident students may participate in the Fall 2013 Promotion by taking the Resident Student Pledge. Pledge to avoid driving alone during peak afternoon commute times through December 2013. Peak times to avoid are main campus departures from 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. Prizes include an iPad mini and $100 gift cards. The pledge closes on Oct. 25, so pledge today if you can.
