King County Metro has launched its In Motion program in Renton and in Burien to encourage people who live or work in the area to leave their cars behind and use healthier travel options – such as transit, bicycling, walking, and carpooling.
Participants who pledge to change some of their tips from driving alone to some other way of getting around will receive a free ORCA card good for two weeks of unlimited travel.
If you live or work in Renton or Burien it’s easy to register online and record your weekly progress. You must be 16 years or older and have at least one car in the household. As you log your trips online you will become eligible for weekly prizes.
So far, over 400 people have signed up this program and we have saved over 5,500 car miles since the program launched on July 28, 2014. You can check the updated stats at the website.
The program will run 12 weeks, but be sure to sign up by October 10 to receive a free ORCA card good for two weeks of unlimited travel. More information is available at King County Metro Transit’s In Motion website or by calling 206-477-2005.
