Whether you’re a commuter interested in finding a carpool partner, a resident interested in figuring outlocal public transit services, or a family wanting to take the Capitol Corridor train to the Bay Area, we can help you find the information you need.

Through its Congestion Management Program (CMP), PCTPA promotes the use of alternative transportation modes including carpooling, vanpooling, telecommuting, biking, taking public transit, riding the train, or walking.

Several programs, incentives, and resources are made available through the CMP that aim to get people out of their single occupancy vehicles with the goal of improving air quality and reducing traffic congestion in Placer County.

Alternative Transportation includes a list of year round and seasonal programs and services as well as a list of resources that can get you on the path to finding an alternative transportation option that works for you.
