Drive less, get free Orca card
Have you thought about wanting to make the switch to transit, but didn't quite want to pay the price for the convenience of an Orca card? Now is your time for a smooth transition, as King County Metro will provide free Orca cards to anyone who registers for their new InMotion campaign. See below for full release.
(Full disclosure: Ballard News-Tribune is a community sponsor of the InMotion program.)
Ballard and Crown Hill are getting In Motion!
This fall is the perfect time to make easy changes to the way you travel by joining the Ballard/Crown Hill In Motion program, beginning September 10th. In Motion offers a great opportunity to learn about how to get the most out of the existing travel network, learn about the new bus services starting September 29th, 2012 while saving money, avoiding traffic and parking hassles, improving your health, and earning rewards!
To sign up, all you have to do is pledge to reduce drive-alone trips by at least two trips a week and log your trips. Once you pledge, you’ll receive a free ORCA card with unlimited travel until November 24, 2012. You can win more rewards the more weeks you log your trips, like $25 or $50 gift cards from local businesses like Sonic Boom, Crown Hill Pet Supply, Ballard Sip & Ship and Kick It Boots & Stompwear. When it comes to discovering new ways to get around—now is the time! Visit the In Motion website at www.kingcounty.gov/inmotion (click on Ballard/Crown Hill) to learn more or find us on Facebook.
