Check out how your trips helped increase community mobility in Redmond.

Go Redmond’s “Commute for a Cause” was a huge success with over 68,000 non-drive alone trips logged in February, far exceeding their goal of 43,000 trips. 

As a result, almost 10,000 bus trips will be donated to Redmond community members in need, to be provided through local non-profits:


Child Care Resources


Child Care Resources Homeless Child Care Program  

Provides child care subsidies to Redmond families. Bus tickets will be distributed to parents in the program to support their efforts to end their homeless experience (i.e., travel to and from child care, attend appointments, look for housing and jobs).

Congregations for the Homeless
