Log trips. Earn rewards.
Choose Your Way Bellevue Rewards is your online trip logging, rewards and ridematching system connecting Bellevue workers and residents with information and encouragement for making non-drive-alone transportation alternatives a part of your lifestyle. It's the Bellevue portal to the regional ridematching platform RideshareOnline.com. If you have an account with RideshareOnline, Curb the Congestion, Kirkland Green Trip, Go Redmond, Just One Trip or Issaquah Salmon Friendly Trips, you can use the same login to participate in Choose Your Way Bellevue Rewards.
Use this portal to:
- Find carpool and vanpool partners across the Puget Sound region.
- Log your non-drive-alone trips to keep track of financial, CO2, and gas savings and become eligible for local and regional incentives for logging those trips!
- Cold Days, Warm Trips: Every new year brings with it the opportunity to make a fresh start. This winter if you log at least eight days’ worth of non-drive-alone trips (transit, carpool, vanpool, walk, bike, telework or trip removed due to compressed work week) , you’ll qualify for a Choose Your Way Bellevue reward! These trips must be taken to or from a Bellevue location through March 31, 2021. Choices for merchandise packages include branded backpacks, waist pack + keylight carabiner + reflective slap bracelet, and tumbler + touch screen gloves.
- Bellevue's Monthly $50 Winner - Log 8 Days: In addition, every month we're still randomly choosing one Bellevue trip logger to win a $50 reward just for logging eight (8) days of non-drive-alone travel (transit, carpool, vanpool, walk, bike, telework or trip removed due to compressed work week) in a calendar month to or from a Bellevue address. Trips must be logged by the 7th of the following month to be eligible for the drawing. Your travel habits make a difference in our community - we're here to reward you for it!
- Mover of the Month: Share your non-drive-alone transportation stories with us! Each month CYWB staff will select one Bellevue traveler’s submission, and their story may be featured in our monthly Choose Your Way Bellevue newsletter. Winners will receive $50 towards your bus or vanpool fare in the form of a TranBen voucher or the equivalent in Choose Your Way Bellevue merchandise! There’s no need to reapply each month, but feel free to share more than one story with us. Learn more and submit your commute story here.
- Perks: Occasionally, Bellevue trip loggers who log at least eight days of non-drive-alone travel (for commute or other purposes) will be eligible for a Choose Your Way Bellevue “Perk”. Our team will email qualifying participants a coupon or discount to a local business after the 7th of the following month.
Choose Your Way Bellevue Rewards is open to anyone whose home or work address is within the official Bellevue city limits. Only trips logged to or from a Bellevue location may count towards rewards and promotions.
Business Rules: Choose Your Way Bellevue staff will use a randomizer to select winners and notify them by email.

Staff will attempt to follow up with winners in cases of non-responsiveness and returned mail. All rewards are available only while supplies last.
