Every mile you don't drive alone gives bus passes to those in need.

750,000 miles = 7,500 bus passes

Join the Challenge!

For the month of February, Go Redmond set a community goal of reaching 750,000 miles not driven alone. If our Go Redmond community can reach this goal, we’ll donate 7,500 bus trips to community members in need through local non-profits.  

Transportation is the second highest household cost in the Redmond area. Reliable access to transportation is critical to helping end poverty and help people experiencing homelessness get to their jobs and needed services. 

So add all of your bike, walk, transit, carpool and vanpool trips to your Commute Calendar this month to give back to our Redmond community. Even walks to lunch or carpool to basketball practice counts when logged as “Personal Trips.”

"Cleotha Nicholas wants to express thanks to the City of Redmond. She is grateful for the support she and her family received in reducing her barriers not only in transportation, but also in indirectly helping her become a productive individual to the community and giving her the self-esteem to live up to her potential. Her goal is to give back to the community, raise her son, keep her family in a safe environment and to one day achieve financial stability." — 2016 YWCA Client, Recipient of transportation funds

When the goal is achieved City of Redmond Human Services will award grants to agencies who will be able to distribute passes to individuals and families who may need a range of human services, such as shelter, affordable child care, or job assistance. 

To respond to recommendations coming out of Redmond’s Task Force on Homelessness, priority will be given to agencies serving homeless individuals in our community.
