San Francisco County

Resource Team

The San Francisco Spare the Air Resource Team is working to encourage visitors to San Francisco to use transit rather than drive. The Team developed a website at with information about how to get to, and around, San Francisco without a car. The Guide to Riding BART and Muni helps those new to transit feel comfortable navigating these transit systems.

The Team developed the Fit-Trips Challenge to highlight the health and wellness benefits of using alternatives to driving alone – to get to work, school, and around town – by using a FitBit Flex. The Team has recruited commuters to try walking, biking, carpooling, and taking transit or shuttles to increase activity, lower stress levels, and help Spare the Air. Commuters can also save money on gas and parking by using these alternatives to driving alone. Interviews with Fit-Trips Challenge participants are available online.

The Resource Team hosted a luncheon for businesses located in San Francisco at E&O Kitchen and Bar on March 22, 2018. Local companies shared how they are successfully promoting carpooling and biking to work. If you would like to receive information about future events, please contact Stephanie Anderson at .
