The Seattle Squeeze Is Coming!
It's time to get ready - Starting January 11, 2019, the Puget Sound region will experience the longest closure of a major highway when WSDOT closes the Alaskan Way Viaduct to complete the work needed to open the SR 99 tunnel three weeks later. Everyone traveling in the region will be impacted.

With some planning and creativity, it is still possible to get where you need to go during the Seattle Squeeze. This is a great time to try a new mode of travel. Be sure to try out your new commute before January 11th!  For more information on the closure visit SeattleTraffic.org and Kingcounty.gov/getready

December’s Mover Of The Month
Did you know that you can have a chance to earn awesome rewards just by logging your commute? Just by signing up for Choose Your Way Bellevue Rewards and logging eight non-drive alone commute trips a month you will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win a $100 REI gift card!

Gwen is our November Mover of the Month and carpools regularly from her home in Kent to Downtown. By choosing to carpool, Gwen has been able to catch up on her favorite audio books, and it almost sounds like she enjoys sitting in traffic!

Here’s what Gwen shared with us:

For most of 2018, I have been working at the eBay Bellevue offices and carpooling with a partner that I met through RideshareOnline. It made the trip from home to work much quicker and cost effective. We started listing to podcasts, but soon shifted to books on audio and discovered a shared appreciation for the fantasy, mystery, and horror. We listened to The Haunting of Hill House and most of The Dresden Files. Instead of being stressful, when there’s a lot of traffic it became an opportunity to hear more of the book that we’d only listen to while commuting together–a nice compensation.

But why the cutesy picture of jewelry instead of a carpool photo?  Well Gwen told us that in her personal life, she enjoys making chainmail jewelry as a part-time business and that carpooling has been an “Important Link” in her life. Too clever! We love it Gwen!

And remember, you can learn more about Choose Your Way Bellevue Rewards, including the Monthly Perks Program and 25 win $25 Drawing!
