In one of many initiatives governments are putting in place to encourage people to reduce their carbon footprint, the city of Atlanta is offering toll credits to commuters who take public transportation or carpool to work. Essentially this means you could get paid if you help to lessen traffic congestion on the Interstate 85. It would really just be a bonus that less cars mean less air pollution.

For taking public transit, commuters can earn up to $60 every six months in toll credits if they connect their bus pass with their Peach Pass. The Peach Pass is an electronic toll collection mechanism. While registration for the transit scheme is closed, carpool toll credits are available.
