Statewide, local and regional transportation agencies want to encourage people to try alternate ways to get to work and are willing to provide prizes for hopping on a bike, taking the bus or walking at least four trips by Sept. 18.
The local Lose the Keys and Score Big campaign is offering prizes, including a massage, various gift cards and more. The Yakima Valley Regional Commute Trip Reduction (CTR) program, administered by the Yakima Valley Conference of Governments, is promoting and sponsoring the local campaign. A statewide campaign sponsored by RideshareOnline.com is running the same time.
