Downtown Bellevue On The Move Presents the Summer Commute Challenge!

Summer Commute Challenge

Downtown Bellevue Residents & Workers:

How did you get to work today? If the answer is you drove alone (again) then this is your chance to try a new way to work!   Downtown Bellevue on the Move is looking for a few challengers, who live or work in downtown Bellevue, to try a new, greener commute and to tell us about it!  Trying a new commute can seem a little daunting at first, but our staff wants to make it as easy on you as possible. That is why Downtown Bellevue On The Move will pay for your green commute for a month (some restrictions apply) – and are even throwing in a reward. So what are you waiting for? 

August could be the month that you leave your car at home, sit back and relax during a bus ride, dust off that old bike, or call up that friend on the 6th floor to see if he or she wants to try carpooling for a month.  Downtown Bellevue On The Move staff will help you plan your commute and can walk you through the process. All we ask in return is that you document your experience and share 4 weekly journal entries, paired with videos or photos to be posted on our blog or other social media sources. We want to hear about how it goes!

Those who are eligible and successfully complete the challenge will receive a gift card for participating (while supplies last). At the end of the year challengers will be entered to win a grand prize of a Kindle Fire, iPad Mini, iPod Touch, or Microsoft Store gift card.

Fill out an application today! Take on the challenge. 

If you already commute by a greener mode – refer a friend or two!  They will thank you later.

    I work in the Skyline Tower and I am very excited to tell you about my commute. I am filling out an application, but here’s a preview:

    I live in Madison Park and had typically been driving either I-90 or 520 since the bus system from MP to Bellevue is not pretty. So, my solution:
    I’ve been riding my bike to the Montlake/520 Freeway Station and then hoping on an Out-of-Service bus which takes bike riders free across the bridge (the is a 3.5 mile ride). They let me off at the Evergreen Point stop in Medina and then I ride another 3.5 miles to Bellevue Center!

    This commute is completely free and very easy! And, I get more exercise!
