• Share your story & Enter to win

  • Whether you travel for work, school, running errands, or just for fun, and whether you drive, share a ride, use transit, ride a bike, walk, or a combination of a few – you're a commuter! And in this evolving age of attending class or working from home, tele"commuting" is increasingly more popular, too.

    So complete this short form to let us know how you get navigate daily life in and around Oakland, so that other community members can learn from your experience! Tell us what mode you use to commute into, out of, and around Oakland right now. Whether that's for school, work, or play, we want to hear your story – and may contact you to ask if we can share your story on social media!

    Every individual who completes this form will be entered to win one of five pairs of Jabra Elite headphones and other swag. The headphones in particular are cool because they feature "hear through" technology that makes it easy to still stay in tune with your surroundings while listening to music or talking on your phone while walking, going for a run, riding a bike, etc. By submitting, you are not guaranteed a prize. Our five winners will be contacted via email at the address you provide here to arrange pickup after September 1, 2023.

    Following us on Facebook and Twitter will earn you additional entries into the giveaway.

    Note: By completing this form, you will be subscribed to receive email alerts from OTMA so that you are always in the loop when it comes to traffic, construction, and other impacts on motorists, pedestrians, transit riders, cyclists, and more. We may also contact you to sign up for other programs, and of course you'll be able to opt out at any time or tailor your preferences based on the resources you find most helpful.
