Yes, definitely. Many companies have instituted carpooling incentives, rewarding employees with things like preferred parking, prepaid gas cards, and cash. The EPA and DOT (Department of Transportation) teamed up to create a voluntary National Standard of Excellence to provide commuters with employer-funded benefits. Select cities even offer group discounts on mass transit fares.
Yes, they do, although it was difficult to find company names. Many large corporations offer incentives for buying a hybrid vehicle (such as Google and Bank of America), and a few have started carpool programs with ride-sharing incentives. Here are a few I found (from the first link, below):
Carpool incentives first were introduced into the U.S. in the 70s, though their popularity waned. They are supposed to be on the rise today.
Somewhat relevant to the question California has actually created incentives for drivers who purchase a Nissan Leaf. The benefits include: a $5,000 tax credit and access to carpooling lanes. Not only are companies offering incentives for carpooling, but so are states.
