Q: What is Georgia Commute Options?
A: An awesome set of free services that help improve how metro Atlanta gets to and from work. We offer cash and prizes to commuters that choose alternatives to driving alone—and our services help make that switch as easy as possible.
Q: How do I sign up?
A: Click here. You’ll be asked to enter information including your home address, work address, work hours and information about your commute. You’ll receive an email that asks you create a password in order to log in to your profile.
Q: I am not receiving emails from Georgia Commute Options like my log reminders or prompts to reset my password. What’s wrong?
A: Sometimes those emails are sent to spam folders, so you can check there first! Remember to add MyGaCommuteOptions@MyGaCommuteOptions.com to your list of approved senders to receive our emails in the future.
Q: How much does it cost to find a ridematch?
A: Nothing at all—our ridematching service is totally free.
Q: Is this a program like Uber?
A: No. Uber is like a taxi service that picks riders up and takes them to their destination for a fee. Georgia Commute Options helps commuters find their own rideshare options for their commute.
Q: Why do you collect so much information?

A: Click here to be taken to your “Change My Password” page. Remember your password must include a minimum of 1 letter, 1 number and 1 special character.
Q: What is a “clean commute?”
A: Any commute that doesn’t involve driving alone! Carpooling, biking, walking, teleworking, vanpooling, and transit all qualify. We also count Compressed Work Weeks—that is, working longer days, fewer days a week—because those create off days on which employees help reduce congestion and air pollution by skipping a day’s commute. However Compressed Work Weeks are not eligible for the $3 a Day/Gimme Five incentive. Click here to learn more about each of these clean commute options.
