Commuter Incentives

Arlington Transportation Partners

Arlington Transportation Partners encourages and provides support to staff and teachers to adopt new transportation options including carpooling, walking, and biking to work through transportation programs that meet the unique needs of each school.

Capital Bikeshare

Arlington Public Schools, in conjunction with Arlington Transportation Partners, is happy to offer APS employees free Capital Bikeshare memberships. Register for the Group Rate using the code CaBi4APS and your APS email, and the annual membership fee of $85 will be waived. The first 30 minutes of every ride are always free – after 30 minutes, individuals are responsible for their own usage fees incurred for longer trips. View APS Capital Bikeshare Flyer for more information.

Commuter Connections

Commuter Connections has a range of resources and rewards for members region-wide who want to share the ride and earn rewards. Click HERE for more information.

Join the Carpool Community

APS employees can register to be potentially matched with another APS employee to carpool. Sharing the ride reduces costs, cleans the air and lets you use HOV lanes as well. Click HERE to register.

Vanpool Connect

In an effort to get more people interested and educated in vanpool transportation, Arlington Transportation Partners (ATP) has teamed up with local vanpool providers to help people secure an easy and affordable commute both into and out of Arlington County. Commuter vanpools expenses may be eligible under the Transit Flexible Spending Account benefit, as defined by the IRS.
