SamTrans

SamTrans riders board on El Camino Real near downtown San Mateo.

SamTrans and Caltrain riders can now earn rewards through a partnership with Miles, a platform and app.

Transit riders who use the Miles app already earn rewards, but the San Mateo County Transit District’s partnership will offer exclusive reward opportunities to riders who choose SamTrans and Caltrain for their travel needs. SamTrans and Caltrain riders will be eligible to compete in special public transit challenges to earn additional rewards, such as Amazon or Starbucks gift cards, tickets to local events, and special offers from local retailers and merchants.

Available on iOS and Android, Miles allows anyone with a smartphone to earn miles as they travel. Designed to work seamlessly in the background, Miles automatically logs each trip from point A to B and the mode of transportation, while keeping data completely private.

The district is conducting a one-year pilot with Miles. Anonymous travel data received from the pilot program will help inform future transportation planning efforts and to encourage sustainable travel options.
