How winners are chosen

How monthly and Grand Prize winners are chosen:

(Updated May 2015)

Each time a Commute Log Report (CLR) is submitted electronically through Valleyrides.com by a registered participant, the CLR is assigned a number by a computer program. The numbers are assigned consecutively by date and time submitted. Those numbered log submissions are stored in our Valleyrides.com database. The more CLRs someone submits, the more opportunities they have to win one of the monthly cash prizes or a year-end Grand Prize. Each participant has the same number of potential log submissions as anyone else throughout the year.

When it is time to select a monthly Cash or Grand Prize winner, (for monthly cash winners, it’s the first of the month) we select the correct date parameters we want a winner for. (i.e., for logs submitted within a given month, “March 2014” or for the Grand Prize Giveaway for logs submitted throughout that entire fiscal year). The Valleyrides.com computer system then randomly generates the winning commute log(s).  The winning commute log number is then used to identify the associated carpool participant who submitted it. Measure C Carpool staff then verifies the commute log as well as the participant who submitted it, the participant’s employer, list of carpool partners.

~PLEASE~ we cannot honor winners with incomplete or incorrect contact information. Update your account information right away to verify that all requested information is complete.

Each month 500-900+ CLRs are generated through the Valleyrides.com system. The selection process is fair, anonymous, affordable and efficient.

No employee from the website company, Jeffrey Scott Agency, Fresno County Transportation Authority, Measure C staff, or their immediate families are allowed to participate in the Measure C Carpool Program.
