The Great Dickens Christmas Fair

This winter, 511 and the Great Dickens Christmas Fair have teamed up for the second time to reward Bay Area Green Commuters.  Track your green commute (carpool, vanpool, walking, bicycling, transit or telecommute) in your 511 Trip Diary and you will be entered to win tickets to the Great Dickens Christmas Fair at the Cow Palace this December!

Enter the world of Charles Dickens and revel in a Victorian London where it's always Christmas Eve and the streets resound with celebrations of the Season!  Cow Palace is transformed into an old London town, with lamp-lit lanes, pubs, theaters, dance floors and music halls.  Lively calls from street vendors ring out above the crowd and mingle with holiday carolers; tempting aromas of roasted chestnuts and hearty foods fill the air; enticing shops overflow with one-of-a-kind Christmas gifts.

Participating is easy. Access your Trip Diary through your 511 RideMatch account. Log at least fifteen (15) clean commute trips for the month of November and you could win a four-pack of tickets.

To participate:

  1. Visit the Rideshare page at and log in to your 511 RideMatch account. (If you aren't currently registered, follow the new user registration process.)
  2. Track your clean commute trips to work in My Trip Diary.

The Great Dickens Fair tickets are valid November 22-December 21, 2014.
