Get There Corvallis 2017 will take place from May 6-27. The City of Corvallis, Cascades West Rideshare, area merchants and organizations, and area Employee Transportation Coordinators (ETCs) encourage you to leave your single-occupancy vehicle (SOV) at home and travel to work, school or shopping ANOTHER WAY!
Do this at least once during May 6-27, and you’ll be eligible to win terrific PRIZES! Each day you use an environmentally friendly transportation option and register a trip by cycling, walking, carpool/vanpool, transit or telecommuting, you increase your chance of winning prizes such as:
- Two overnight stays at Chinook Winds Casino!
- A Kindle!
- A Samsung® Chromebook !
Track 5 trips at www.DriveLessConnect.com to be eligible for these great prizes, and track just 1 trip to be eligible for gift certificates to local restaurants, shops and more!
- Getting there another way costs less: compare your actual costs at www.rideshareonline.com/commuters/calculator.html
- Corvallis buses are fareless!
- Active transportation is part of a healthy lifestyle and helps you arrive at your destination more alert and invigorated.
- Commute time on the bus or a shared ride becomes free time to read, rest, or catch up on work.
