Skate your way into alternative modes at the Bellevue Magic Season Ice Arena

by Althea Achem | Dec 06, 2016

No matter the weather, King County Metro wants to reward you for using an alternative mode for your commute or even personal trips. An alternative mode is anything that isn’t driving alone in your car, not just taking the bus! That means biking, walking, carpooling, vanpooling, and even working from home count as alternative modes.

To get rewarded, simply join King County Metro’s new program Just One Trip. It’s a free program hosted online; all you need to do to sign up is take the enrollment survey and create a profile in the Community In Motion online network. Use the calendar in your profile to log the alternative trips you take and earn rewards and an emergency ride home credit for taxi, Uber or Lyft.

If you’d like to learn more about the program and how you can commit to green travel, check out the Just One Trip website or stop by to meet the Just One Trip team and win prizes and get your photo snapped at a photo booth at the Bellevue Magic Season Ice Arena Tuesday, December 5 from 4-7pm and Monday, December 19 from 10am-1pm.

By committing to alternative modes, you could win free tickets to the Magic Season Ice Arena! Skate over to King County Metro Transit’s Facebook page for details on how to win. Tickets available only while supplies last.
