Just by being a part of the Choose Your Way Bellevue network, you’re also eligible to participate in a program brought to you by our partners at King County: Just One Trip – Community In Motion! September 1, 2016 through February 28, 2017 the Community In Motion team is asking the you to join in the community movement and further reduce your drive alone trips. Just one trip is all it takes to get started!

The Community in Motion program was created for those live, work or play—and travel—along the urbanized corridors of I-405 and I-90 in King County. All Bellevue workers and residents are eligible. Over the last two years, 10,000 participants have already joined the program. If you can further reduce your drive-alone travel, we invite you to join them and take a test ride. Start by changing “Just One Trip” from driving alone to riding the bus, carpooling, vanpooling, biking or walking. Our Choose Your Way Bellevue team is here to help you explore travel options in your community and find alternatives to driving alone.

JOT modes only

Benefits of participating in Community In Motion program include:

  • Monthly drawings for those who log their non-drive-alone trips.
  • One Emergency Ride Home credit .
  • A reward following completion of the program. (Rewards are only available while supplies last)

ChooseYourWaySchoolPool

The changing of the seasons ushers in many things such as pumpkin flavored treats, nature’s parade of colors along your commute, and this year, SchoolPool!

The City of Bellevue and the Bellevue School District are collaborating to bring SchoolPool to the desktop of families at select pilot schools longing for a way out of the traffic woes generated during the commute to and from school. SchoolPool not only brings relief to families and the communities that support the schools, it also saves time and money. You can access Bellevue SchoolPool via the Choose Your Way Bellevue website.

What is Choose Your Way Bellevue SchoolPool?

CYWB SchoolPool is a free program that includes an online platform, open only to families at participating schools, to help them form ridematches with other families at their child’s school or participating nearby schools. Ridematches aren’t just for carpools; they are also for biking and walking groups with an adult leader.

SchoolPool Pilot is happening at the following schools:

  • Puesta del Sol
  • Somerset Elementary
  • Stevenson Elementary
  • Odle Middle
  • Tyee Middle
  • Newport High
  • Sammamish High
  • Forest Ridge School of the Sacred Heart

Our vision is to utilize SchoolPool to mitigate traffic congestion around schools make the commute to school easier, and help make our city more sustainable!
