More details please! This is a cool idea. What is the reason that your employer stated for the comp?

This is through Rideshare program and our HR department.

Apparently you can get the same benifet carpooling, riding a bike or motorcycle.

Guy at work that rides a Honda (and wants a Vespa) was talking to me about my scoot and told me, I had no idea.

My boss would shit in her pants if the company offered this incentive. She half assed joked about taking my keys away after my accident. Hah, I say! I'm riding in on my first day back to work and she can't do a ting 'bout it.

Oh, we only get commuter monies if we use public transit or proof of carpooling.

When I ride my scooter to your employer (the SF location) I park in their big parking structure for free. You can't get away with that?

$3 per day. Nice, but still way short of any incentive to leave retirement for the workforce. Call us at the beach when it's up to $50 and applies to telecommuting

But, if we were unfortunate enough to have to return to work, that would be a great benefit.

I don't get compensated for riding my scooter but I don't have to pay for parking which would be $50/month. So I guess I do save $2.50/day just by not having to pay for parking. We also are all given a free bus pass to encourage people to take Metro to work.

I was getting $350 bucks a month car allowance, and my scooter payment was $150 bucks, no wonder why they laid me off.

Glad your getting paid to ride.

You rock dude! Don't forget the money you save in gas by not driving the cage. You'll actually have it paid in a couple of years tops.

This post made me check. I work for pretty large co. and I was ready to kick myself if there was a program I hadn't been taking advantage of for the past year +.

Nope - Commuter Incentives for public transport and vanpools. So no kicking myself, but makes me ask... why not!

I pay myself to ride my scoot because I save $16/day in parking by putting the Vespa on the sidewalk in front of my building. With the license plate removed (velcro attachment) and stashed in the topcase, of course, so it is pretty difficult to give me a ticket for sidewalk parking.
