Wheel Options runs Oct. 1 – 31, 2018!
Wheel Options encourages commuters who live or work in Washington to reduce their drive-alone trips and explore new ways of getting to work – and this October, we are encouraging you to LOVE YOUR COMMUTE!!!
Log-In or REGISTER today to explore all your commute options and possibly find a better way to get to work – one that you will fall in LOVE with! With a newly found commute you’ll be all set to participate in and record your saved/shared commutes during the Wheel Options campaign – track six or more Wheel Options commutes in October and you are automatically entered to win some great rewards!
Wait…Did you Say Great Rewards???
YES!!! But you must take and record at least six days of Wheel Options commutes to qualify. Rewards include a $1,500 or $500 digital reward link (via Tango digital reward catalogue – find out more by visiting https://www.tangocard.com/card/use) or one of more than a dozen $50 retail gift cards. The top two winners may choose a reward they love, as the digital link allows winners to choose between more than eight-dozen top retail brands and non-profits—spending all the winnings on one brand, donating to charity or splitting it up amongst multiple options. Your employer may also have additional rewards to win – check with your Employee Transportation Coordinator.
What Modes Qualify? Wheel Options commute modes include vanpool, carpool, bus, train, light rail, streetcar, foot ferry, bicycling, walking, rolling, skateboarding, working from home or compressing work weeks (e.g., four, 10-hour shifts in a week). Please visit our FAQs & Official Rules page for details.
How do I Enter?
1. Employees will need to register for a free account at www.wheeloptions.org (or one of a handful of partner sites) and log their trips on the online calendar—your employees may already be registered if they participated in Wheel Options or any of our partner sites last year. The deadline for recording trips is Friday, Nov. 9, 2018.

2. Encourage employees to start logging their non-single-occupancy-vehicle commutes on the calendar tracker. Any commute by a shared, saved or active mode counts—vanpool, carpool, bus, train, light rail, streetcar, foot ferry, bicycling, walking, rolling, skating, working from home or compressing your work week counts. Alternatively, you may provide employees the option to record trips on a paper Wheel Options entry forms that you will manage and log for them—there is a copy of this form for your use and distribution in the toolkit. The deadline for recording trips is Friday, Nov. 9, 2018, so if you have paper forms to input, please provide your employees an earlier deadline to turn forms in to you.
For more information, contact your employee transportation coordinator!
