Share how you #GoGREATER for a $20 REI Giftcard!

Whether you’ve seen our ads on a King County Metro bus, liked our pics on Instagram or are just hearing about it for the first time, Go Redmond wants to hear how you ditch the solo-drive commute and #GoGREATER. For some, going greater means the wind on their face as they ride their bike to work. For others, going greater means not sitting in traffic (alone) day after day. How do you #GoGREATER?

What does it mean to #GoGREATER?

At Go Redmond, we know that there is more than one way to get to work (and how to do it so you don’t have to drive alone). With options like transit, carpool, vanpool, biking, walking and telecommuting your commute can be as flexible as you need it to be. Everytime you don’t drive to work alone you help our environment and keep cars off the road, and let’s be honest- you help your wallet too.

When you #GoGREATER, you take advantage of the mode that works best for you! Whether you combine biking and transit, ride in a vanpool or carpool each day or choose your own special commute you do your part to keep the roads congestion free and the air clean.

We want to hear how you #GoGREATER. For the next month, when you enter one trip (AHEM! ONE TRIP, that's right- one!) on your Go Redmond Calendar you can share how you #GoGREATER for a $20 REI giftcard! Check out how our friend Dennis L opts to #GoGREATER:

“I commute from Seattle to Redmond every day for work. During the winter I ride the bus, but in the summer I ride my bike. I can’t wait to take advantage of the completed 520 Bridge trail for my commute. I love logging my trips because every once in awhile I earn a cool prize like $25 in Amazon credits or choose to donate my reward as an ORCA card for someone who needs it more than I do.”
-Dennis L.
