Intercity Transit promotes transportation choices that are sustainable, livable and healthy. One way we do this is by encouraging people to get out of their cars and ride through our annual Bicycle Commuter Challenge. By supporting active transportation, we are improving the quality of life for all Thurston County residents.
Bicycling lowers stress and improves physical and mental health. All of these can help lower healthcare costs.
In 2016 the average annual cost of operating a vehicle in the U.S. was over $8,500. Think of all the other things you could do with that money!
Riding your bike instead of taking your car reduces CO2 emissions and cuts down on traffic congestion.
