Ever thought about taking the bus to work, but the “last mile” connection from the Eastgate Park-and-Ride was just a little to far from your worksite? Ride2 has you covered, and that bus commute option is back on the table!
Ride2 Eastgate is a new service launched by King County Metro on Oct. 23. The service connects you car-free to home, school or work from transit at the Eastgate Park-and-Ride and the other way around.
How does it work? From within the 2- to 3-mile service area, you can use an app to hail a Ride2 van to take you to the park-and-ride so you can catch your bus and go where you need to! Or, if you live outside of the service area but your office is within it, take the bus to the park-and-ride and then hail a Ride2 van to travel that last mile from the park-and-ride to your office in the morning, and back at the end of the day. Best of all, it’s free for the first few months!
Sounds like a good deal, right? Well, Choose Your Way Bellevue wants to sweeten that deal—The first 25 people who show us that they’ve ridden Ride2 will receive a free Choose Your Way Bellevue backpack, more than a $20 value!
Interested? Here are three easy steps that will score you a backpack:
Step 1: Book a ride on demand or schedule it in advance with the Ride2 Park-and-Ride app to take a trip to or from the Eastgate Park-and-Ride. If you take the bus to the park-and-ride you can use the service to travel the “last mile” to work! Need help? Visit the King County Metro Ride2 webpage.
Step 2: Enjoy your fast, easy, convenient and free (for a limited time!) ride and snap a selfie of yourself in or with the van.
Step 3: Email us your photo (firstname.lastname@example.org) and provide us with your mailing address. We’ll send you a fancy, limited edition Choose Your Way Bellevue backpack, just for taking a free ride and sharing your photo! (While supplies last. Let us know if you don’t want us to post your photo publicly.)
