dibs is the San Joaquin Council of Government’s Transportation Demand Management Program promoting smart travel options, such as carpooling, vanpooling, riding transit, biking and walking to work to reduce traffic congestion, cut vehicle emissions and miles traveled, and improve air quality. This is done through employer outreach, marketing, and offering tools and incentives for commuters to make a change. The dibs trip planning system has attracted 12,272 members who receive information and use smart travel options.

San Joaquin County Vanpool Program

dibs vanpooldibs vanpools are one of the most effective transportation options to reduce congestion 
and improve air quality in the region. SJCOG partners with the San Joaquin Regional 
Transit District and Commute with Enterprise to participate in the Federal Transit 
Administration’s National Transit Database program. This program allows SJCOG to  
report vanpool data with the potential of increasing transit funding for San Joaquin a 
County. Measure K funds monthly monetary incentive to vanpool drivers who collect  
data and report through Enterprise vanpool online portal. For Fiscal Year 2021-22, the 

results were: 164 new  vanpools, 
417 total vanpools, 30% increase from prior 
year, 31 million  vehicle miles reduced, and 
286,576 vehicles off the road.

San Joaquin County Park and Ride Lots

Park and RidePark and ride lots offer a convenient location to transfer from a single passenger vehicle or bicycle to a 
carpool, vanpool or transit option. SJCOG works with RTD to implement a park and ride lot program 
to make it convenient for commuters and transit users by collaborating with local organizations and  
businesses to provide spaces for commuters. Measure K funds two leased lots providing commuters a  
meeting place before their travels. These lots complement the existing lots developed by cities and

Bike Month

dibs supports active transBikeMonth2022_InfoGraph_Finalportation — self-propelled, human-powered 
modes of transportation, such as walking, bicycling, or even 
skateboarding — and the Measure K Bicycle and Pedestrian Program.   
dibs does this in part by organizing an annual Bike Month campaign to  
encourage commuters to consider alternatives to driving alone and use   
the amenities and bike infrastructures developed by cities and the   
county. That eases traffic congestion, reduces vehicle emissions and  
improves air quality. Active transportation is also part of a healthier  
lifestyle. COVID-19 in years past caused dibs to adjust and offer fun  
virtual events for Bike Month that encouraged cycling to foster that  
healthier lifestyle. Many in-person events returned for the most recent 
Bike Month.
