Wheel Options Banner

Washington’s annual statewide commuter incentive campaign, Wheel Options, starts October 1st.  Any employee who records at least six days of eligible Wheel Option commutes in the month of October will be entered to win a trip for two to Hawaii or many other great prizes. Wheel Option modes include carpool, vanpool, bus, train, light rail, streetcar, bicycle, walk, working from home or skipping the commute because of a compressed work schedule (e.g. four 10-hour shifts in a week).  Everyone who participates will receive a coupon for a free companion fare on Amtrak Cascades.   If you already have a RideshareOnline.com account (did you participate in last year’s Wheel Options campaign, or the RSO Summer Promotion earlier?) you are good to go.  Just sign in, update your information and start logging your trips.  If you don’t, go here and register first.

As its name suggests, RideshareOnline (RSO) is first and foremost a tool for helping match up carpoolers, vanpoolers and others whose needs aren’t met by fixed-route transit.  However it has evolved into the primary tool through which incentive campaigns are implemented in our region.  Given the easy qualifying threshold for Wheel Options and the growing number of other incentive campaigns (such as Metro’s Rideshare Rewards), it is well worth your time to familiarize yourself with both Wheel Options and RideshareOnline.com.

Prize List below the fold.
