Thinking of trying a smarter trip? When you register for Curb the Congestion, you can earn $50 a month for three months to help pay for transportation expenses. Eligible participants receive a $50 voucher toward bus or vanpool fare or a $50 gift card for gas or REI.
After three months, keep logging trips on at least eight days a month on your calendar to qualify for monthly drawings for a $150 prepaid MasterCard gift card.
Would you like $25 to help pay for your transportation expenses? Do you have a friend, neighbor, or coworker who travels on 128th Street, 164th Street, 196th Street, Bothell-Everett Highway or I-405? Would they benefit from learning about their options for making a smarter trip?

You must be a current and active participant in the program yourself.
Curb the Congestion wants to recognize you for your continued dedication to reducing traffic congestion and making our community healthy and vibrant! Starting in 2015, you can nominate yourself for the Curb the Congestion Champion of the Quarter for a chance to win $250.

Rewards for the Curb the Congestion Champion include:
Curb Champion Eligibility must complete a nomination form. Forms will be sent to eligible participants via email approximately 2 weeks after the quarter ends. Submitted nomination forms will be reviewed and scored by the Commute Trip Reduction Peer Advisory Board (a board of Employee Transportation Coordinators that represent Snohomish County’s and the City of Bothell’s commuting employees.)
Your Curb the Congestion Calendar will also calculate how much money, fuel and air pollution you save by not driving alone. Learn more about the calendar.
Step 2: A Community Transit Specialist will contact you to help you plan your trip to work, school, or errands. The representative will also ask you to sign an optional pledge form to reduce your drive-alone trips. Pledging strengthens your commitment to smarter trips.
Step 3: Start making trips by bus, carpooling, vanpooling, bicycling and walking instead of driving alone on one of the targeted road corridors.
Step 4: To qualify for rewards, track your trips online using your personalized Curb the Congestion Calendar.
