Commuter Services: BIKEpool & Walk
Bikepool is a free service offered by TBARTA that matches bicycle commuters with one another. The goal of the Bikepool program is to encourage more residents of the Tampa Bay region to try commuting by bike.
- New to cycling in traffic? Share a ride with a neighbor, coworker or other bicyclist and learn what it takes to ride on urban and suburban streets safely. The more riders in a group, the safer the ride.
- Have you been commuting by bicycle for years? Share your experiences on the ins and outs of riding on urban and suburban streets safely and enjoy your ride with others. Or is recreational cycling your area of expertise? Add commuting to your repertoire and find the best route to your place of work.
In addition, those who regularly commute to work by bicycle may be eligible for our Emergency Ride Home Program, which reimburses you for your cab, Uber, or Lyft ride home up to six (6) times per year if a qualified unscheduled event occurs during the work day.
For safety tips and other bike resources, visit our partners at Bike/Walk Tampa Bay.
*Up to $100 per ride, restrictions apply.
So simple, yet unrealistic for most. If you live within a mile of your office, you can probably walk faster than you can drive and park in the morning and afternoon. Walking has health benefits, takes a trip and car off the road, and gives you more ‘you time’ between work and home. Remember, always be alert and aware when crossing streets and interfacing with vehicular traffic.
