Navigating the return to a “normal” commute in the Bay Area is as elusive as ever. Amid growing employer demands for returning to the office, getting used to shifted yet rebounding traffic, Waze just announced it’s ending its ridesharing carpool service. For the Bay Area’s essential workers, navigating the gaps in convenient and affordable transit has been an unabated pain point before, during and now into the post-pandemic era.

Helping essential workers stay here and thrive improves commute options for all workers — and it’s easier to do than one might expect.
