Thurston County Drawing Winner
Thurston County Employee Transportation Coordinator (ETC), Linda L., presenting Jeremiah the $500 MasterCard
Jeremiah O. of the Thurston County won a $500 MasterCard in the Thurston County drawing!
Jeremiah was asked to give a few words about how it feels to win a $500 MasterCard and what his alternative commute looks like.
"I am so thankful for Wheel Options and the opportunity to win this MasterCard! This surprise couldn't have come at a better time for my family. Our water heater has recently given out on us, and this will help my wife and me tremendously."
“When I started working for Thurston County, walking to work was my first instinct. I live just half a mile from my office, and couldn't imagine driving myself a distance that I could easily walk each day. Sometimes, my wife’s work schedule is in sync with mine and she can drop me off on her way to work, or pick me up on her way home, but I never drive myself. Even though I live so close, I still encourage others to find commuting alternatives. There is always another option, and it could help save our planet!”
Wheel Options is a promotional campaign that encourages and rewards commuters for using work trip commute alternatives.
It’s a great way to promote alternative modes of transportation at your worksite, and an effective way to help your worksite meet its commute trip reduction goals. Eligible Wheel Option modes include carpool, vanpool, public transportation, bicycle, walk, telecommute or a compressed work week (i.e. four, 10-hour days in a week).
Wheel Options is held by WA State Rideshare Organization (WSRO), a non-profit that supports the use of alternative transportation modes to reduce air pollution, traffic congestion, and energy consumption throughout Washington and the northwest. Wheel Options is locally sponsored by Intercity Transit and TRPC.
