What is Wheel Options Around the Sound?

The Wheel Options promotion is held by the Washington State Ridesharing Organization (WSRO), a non-profit organization for individuals dedicated to encouraging policy makers, employers, and commuters to support the use of alternative transportation modes to reduce air pollution, traffic congestion, and energy consumption throughout Washington State and the Northwest.

In 2014, WSRO partnered with King County Metro and WSDOT to receive Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) grant funding from the Puget Sound Regional Council to conduct a regional rideshare promotions within the PSRC’s three-county boundary (Snohomish, King and Pierce). These Wheel Options Around the Sound promotions will occur 2016 and 2017.

Wheel Options is a great opportunity to try and track new alternative transportation modes and take charge of your commute.
