Welcome to the video series from Choose Your Way Bellevue in which we delve into our many different program offerings. Through this series you’ll get a quick understanding of how you can be rewarded for using greener modes of travel when possible, to help ease strain on our roadways so we can all get around more easily!
The Return-to-Travel Rewards
In this video, we will be discussing our latest incentive, called Return-to-Travel. This campaign brings new and exciting rewards for using modes other than solo driving as we get back to the roadways with increased travel to work and other community destinations.
There are several reward types. The first is called “Get Back on the Move.” Participants who log 25 days of non-drive-alone travel will receive a $50 guaranteed gift card reward. One reward is allowed per participant. Reward options help you get around or allow you to make good use of your time while someone else is driving. They are Hulu, Spotify, REI, Shell gas, ORCA and voucher for vanpool or added ORCA card fare.
The next reward type is “Stay on the Move.” For this one, participants who log eight days of non-drive-alone travel within a calendar month will be automatically entered into two drawings of a $25 gift card. The gift card options, again, include: Hulu, Spotify, REI, Shell, ORCA and a voucher for vanpool or added ORCA card fare.
The final reward is known as the “Super Traveler” reward. Participants who complete 50 days of non-drive-alone travel within each three-month period of the campaign, and who will submit 150-word travel stories (to be shared on Choose Your Way Bellevue platforms), will automatically be entered into a single drawing for a pair of Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones. They are valued around $500, and if you prefer you can opt for an equivalent gift card.
There are several steps you need to take in order to log your trips and earn rewards. I’ll quickly run through the necessary steps, starting with your login. On the web, go to our RideshareOnline.com portal at: ChooseYourWayBellevue.org/rewards, click on “Log Your Trips” in the top-left corner and enter your login information.

A new window will pop up, where you’ll need to populate the information for your trip details. This includes purpose, persons, from location, to location, as well as indicating whether or not it’s a round trip. Once all of this information is in there, select “Continue.”
From there, select the days in which you’d like to log your specific type of trip. Once you click on the days, your trips will appear.
