And, when you ride transit for your commute and log four days of trips into your Go Redmond Calendar you are entered to win neat prizes including $25 gift cards to places like Amazon, Starbucks, or Panera (just to name a few).

It really is easier than ever to #GoGREATER and take a vacation from your car! But, don't just take our word for it. Check out these real testimonials from commuters like you:

"I #GoGREATER because there's no better way to finish a long day at work than a relaxing bike ride home on a beautiful summer day. Especially now that the 520 bridge is open, the trip will be an awesome way to unwind and get in a workout while keeping my car off the road. The public transit system in Seattle and Redmond is really great and easy to use as well. The routes are really convenient and the schedule is great, even with my extremely early start to the day. I am really excited for summer" - Chris

"I #GoGREATER by riding the bus to and from work everyday. It's better for the environment, allows me to relax or work while on my commute, and means I don't need to deal with having a car in the city." - Jennifer

"I #GoGREATER each day by walking 1 mile and then riding the bus downtown to my office.  I get a chance to clear my mind and not worry about the stress of driving downtown." - Ryan

"I #GoGREATER by riding my bike to the 520 bus stop in Seattle three days a week, then taking the bus across the water into Redmond’s Microsoft campus. By riding my bike I am able to get to the closest bus stop. It’s over a mile from my house, so my bike makes it possible to get there quickly. I enjoy the fresh air and exercise while riding my bike in the morning and evening as I come to and from the bus stop. Riding the bus allows me to do my part to keep our air clean." - Emily

It's the perfect time to ditch your car and combine walking transit, biking, carpooling, or whatever methods work best for you.
