Story

Discover the travel options in your neighborhood today!

Metro Transit’s In Motion program has arrived in the Ravenna-Bryant area – featuring a free ORCA card and prize drawings for people who pledge to drive less.

By taking part in the program, residents can find more ways to give their car a break and explore healthier transportation options available in their neighborhood by taking the bus, walking, bicycling, carpooling and more. Take a pledge by Aug. 7 to drive less and get an ORCA card good for two weeks of unlimited travel.

Participants who register and log their progress will be entered in the weekly drawings for gift cards to local businesses and will receive entry into the grand prize drawing for a Mariners and Pyramid gift card package or a Vios Café and Third Place Books gift card package!

The program follows the recent extension of Link light rail service to Capitol Hill and University of Washington. Link now connects downtown Seattle and UW in as little as eight minutes and provides additional connections to SODO, Beacon Hill, Rainier Valley and Sea-Tac Airport. Trains come every six to 10 minutes for much of the day. Residents also have frequent, all-day bus service available on Route 62, which provides a great east-west connection from Sand Point to Wallingford and then to downtown Seattle, and Routes 65 and 372X, which connect with Link at UW station. Route 71 provides additional all-day service to UW station, and Routes 64X, 74 and 76 provide peak period service directly to downtown Seattle, South Lake Union and First Hill.

A video series shows the ways riders can make Link connections, and an interactive map is among special online tools to help riders get started.

Since 2004, In Motion has provided over 36 King County neighborhoods and communities with tools and information on how residents can explore healthier travel options. With the help of In Motion, King County neighborhoods have reduced over 3.2 million miles of drive alone trips and saved 157,000 gallons of gas! Those already living a car-free lifestyle can still earn rewards by signing up for the car-free program.
