West Seattle In Motion Update
The results of West Seattle In Motion are in and they are fantastic! Here is a report from the West Seattle In Motion Team.
Dear West Seattle In Motion Participants:
You’ve walked the talk. You’ve biked the bridge. You’ve shared the ride. And you’ve made a difference. Boy oh boy, what a difference it was!
Over 1,200 proud West Seattle citizens participated in our program resulting in:
- 14,723 gallons of gas saved. That’s two fuel tanker-trucks full!
- 285,621 pounds of pollution was prevented from entering our skies. That’s the same weight as 1,495 average American men (pre-holiday food and festivities weight, of course).
- 294,455 miles were not driven. That’s equivalent to approximately 240 miles (think driving from Seattle to Spokane) per participant!
We have officially wrapped up the project and have closed our survey. Thanks for your input – it will help us create a better project in the future. We hope you continue trying new ways to getting around West Seattle and beyond. Look for future opportunities on the In Motion website.
Haven’t had enough yet? We say...don’t stop till you get enough. Check out the city of Seattle’s Walk Ride Bike Challenge. They’ll be starting a new session in January. The more sustainable travel trips you take-- the more chances to win! Find out more here!
Thank you again West Seattle movers and shakers! Stay In Motion!
Your West Seattle In Motion Team
