Since its inception in 2006, Whatcom Smart Trips has been encouraging Whatcom County residents to walk, bike, ride the bus, and share rides instead of driving alone – and rewarding those who do with great prizes and valuable rewards.
A list of merchants in Bellingham, Lynden, Ferndale, Blaine and Deming/Van Zandt offer discounts to Smart Trips participants, which is detailed on its website.
Now the popular program has also launched a Smart Trips Discount Map, which pinpoints these different retailers, restaurants, and service providers that partner with Whatcom Smart Trips.
After recording just ten Smart Trips, program members receive a Smart Trips Discount Card, which is good until the end of each calendar year. Simply show your Smart Trips Discount Card or WTA bus pass to receive discounts at the participating businesses.
