Try & Ride Application

The CMT Transit Try & Ride Program is a complimentary program for the region’s commuters in Missouri and Illinois. There is no fee to participate. Participants are asked to commit to use transit for two months for their commutes to work (this does not mean every day of the week for eight weeks – the commitment includes transit travel 3 to 4 days per week). CMT will cover one month of tickets and the second month will be covered on their own (many commuters may even work for an employer who covers the cost of the transit pass or a portion of the cost).  Participants will also be asked to take a quick survey at the end of the first month and then again at the end of their two month transit commitment. 

A participant will sign a letter of commitment agreeing to these terms for the two month period.  Once registered, commuters will receive the Try & Ride Packet in the mail.  

 

PROGRAM RULES AND REGULATIONS:

CMT reserves the right to deny any application for any reason. In addition, any incomplete applications for the CMT Try & Ride program will not be processed and will be denied. This program is only eligible for individuals who do not currently take transit for the work commute. If for some reason, CMT suspects abuse of the program i.e. more than 2 applications from the same address within a three-month period, all applications will be denied. Thanks for participating.
