MyCommute.org has a lot of great information about the benefits of using commute alternatives including carpooling, bicycling, walking, riding the bus, vanpooling, working from home and compressing your work schedule! In addition, you can register, log your work or school commute and be eligible for prizes each month.

Initiated and managed by the Commute Trip Reduction (CTR) Office, the CTR Office works with employers throughout Spokane County to reduce trips by encouraging employees to use commute alternatives to work. If you do not work for a company that has a Commute Trip Reduction (CTR) program, you can still be part of the movement to help reduce air pollution, traffic congestion and fuel consumption… all benefiting our environment and community.

Go to MyCommute.org today to register. Once registered, you can begin logging your trips. The calendar will also give you stats on how you are making a difference including miles not driven, air pollution not emitted and cost savings.

For more information on how to register go to MyCommute.org and go to the instructions at the bottom of the page that say “Join MyCommute.org Today!”

Thank you in advance for making the choice to Travel Green by using a commute alternative and helping the CTR Office track how many trips are saved on a daily basis. Your efforts make a difference!
