June is Ride Transit Month
This June is a month-long celebration of transit. Whether you ride a bus, train, or vanpool, or you are headed to work, school, the grocery store, or anywhere in between, transit can get us there together.
This is also a great way to keep the fun of Bike Month going by combining your bike ride with a bus trip. Did you ride your bike during Bike Month, May 1-31? Don’t forget to log your trips at PierceTrips.com by June 5.

Ride Transit Month has a goal of 10,000 participants, 700,000 + miles on buses, trains, and ferries, and avoiding the emissions of 1,000,000 pounds of carbon dioxide (CO2). Put on by Transportation Choices Coalition, Ride Transit Month in Pierce County is supported by a partnership with Downtown On the Go and Pierce Trips.
