May’s Mover of the Month: MateuszPosted on May 20, 2019
Did you know that you can have a chance to earn awesome rewards just by logging your commute?
Take a page out of Mateusz’s book, our May Mover of the Month, who won our $100 drawing for May. He commutes regularly from Downtown Bellevue to Downtown Seattle by bus. By choosing to commute by bus, Matt has saved thousands of dollars per year and has time to catch up on his Netflix shows!
Here’s what he has to say:
I take the 550 bus from Bellevue Transit Center to Downtown Seattle. I get off the bus near Westlake Center, and take a 20-minute walk to the South Lake Union area, where I work. I prefer to wake up early, so I usually take the 6:18 a.m. bus and arrive at the office around 7 a.m.
I happen to live in an apartment building one block away from the Bellevue Transit Center, so it just makes sense to take a bus to work, given how convenient the connection is.
I like to spend my morning and evening commutes reading e-books, watching Netflix, or listening to music--in general, relaxing. Riding a bus allowed me to catch up on Breaking Bad, The Office, and the Bourne book series :).
I moved to the US with my wife over five years ago, and we both love it here. I especially enjoy the Seattle music scene and, of course, the Seahawks!
A huge thank you to Mateusz for sharing his commute with us! We hope his experience can serve as inspiration for you to try out your own alternative mode of transportation – why not start with the bus! June is Ride Transit Month, and Choose Your Way Bellevue provides an ORCA card to certain new transit users through our Try Transit program.
