Prizes up for grabs for smart commuters

You’ve seen it before. Some lucky person from Seattle wins a trip to France. This is different.

Whatcom Smart Trips, Western Washington University and many other local businesses have put together an amazing list of prizes for the Smart Trips Fall Prize Campaign – and your chances of winning are really good! This is a special promotional campaign just for the employees of Smart Trips Employer Partners. So every one of these prizes will be won by someone right here in Whatcom County.

Here's how to enter:

  • Walk, bicycle, share a ride or ride the bus – instead of driving alone – for ANY of your local trips (not just work trips). Do that at least twice September 15 – 28.
  • Go to and click on Create an Account. (If you already have an account, make sure Western is listed as your employer, and log your trips as usual!)
  • Complete the sign-up form. Make sure Western is designated as your employer.
  • Click on the days in September that you made Smart Trips and record those trips in your trip diary.

That’s it! You’ll be automatically entered to win.
