The Get There SW Washington program’s goal is to decrease the number of drive alone trips in Southwest Washington
VANCOUVER — Getting to, from and around Southwest Washington without a car just got easier with the city of Vancouver’s new tool: www.getthereswwashington.org.
“Working with our regional partners, the city of Vancouver had the opportunity to lead the development of a trip-planning tool to make non-drive alone travel options, like riding a bike or carpooling, to and from SW Washington easier for those who live and work in our community,” said Jennifer Campos, Principal Transportation planner at the city of Vancouver.
The Get There SW Washington program’s goal is to decrease the number of drive alone trips in Southwest Washington. Less people driving alone also means less congestion and time spent in traffic, less environmental impact from carbon emissions and less costly infrastructure improvements to our roads and highways.
The first 500 people who register and log at least one trip will receive a $5 Burgerville gift card.
The new trip planning and trip tracking tool was designed with every traveler in mind, and features tools to easily:
- Find the best public transit options when traveling in Clark County or the Portland Metro area
- Find a carpool partner
- Join or start a C-TRAN vanpool that starts, ends or travels through Clark County. For more information about C-TRAN’s Vanpool program call (360) 906-7447 or email SindyQ@c-tran.org
- Log your non-drive alone trips and be entered to win one of the monthly $25 gift card reward drawings
- Log your commute trips using the companion CommuteTracker app by RideAmigos, which automatically detects when you commute between your home and work location
