How does my company sign up?

If your company does not have an ETC (Employee Transportation Coordinator), you should first designate someone as an ETC. An ETC serves as a liaison to Traffic Solutions, and provides information to employees about biking, walking, transit, carpooling, and vanpooling. Basically, an ETC is the communication point between employees and Traffic Solutions. The ETC can be anyone that communicates with employees regularly, but is usually an HR Director, other HR staff, Executive Director, or CEO, depending on the size and organization of the company.

The ETC should create an account on Traffic Solutions Online. Once this is done, contact Lori La Riva, our Employer Programs Coordinator. You can be set up as an administrator at that point, and you will have access to the tools described above. Only Traffic Solutions staff can set you up as an administrator.

Bike Challenge

The Bike Challenge is a friendly competition with five-member teams making round-trips by bike instead of by car. Team members log each day they bike on their Commute Calendar. At the end of the competition, teams ranked 1st, 2nd, 3rd... 50th earn fame and the money for their chosen programs - $25 to $500 depending on rank. Businesses can also compete for prizes and glory. The Bike Challenge is open to anyone who lives or works in Santa Barbara County, as well as local businesses. When registration opens in April, join a team or create a team.
