Ride Transit Month 2022 is officially a wrap! All June long we celebrated riding transit with partners and riders across Washington state – from Tacoma to the Tri-Cities. More than 300 people took our Ride Transit Month pledge and more than 500 people in total shared photos of their rides on social media and joined us for events including our Transit Talk, Transit Trivia, and Ride Transit Night at the Ballpark. Here’s a look back at everything that happened this month!
Ride Transit Month proclamations
In addition to the 15 local jurisdictions that proclaimed June Ride Transit Month, we are thrilled to announce that Washington state has also made it official! By issuing this proclamation, Washington is joining others in declaring transit an important part of our communities that deserves our attention and support.
Transportation Choices Coalition is proud that our state has affirmed transit as an integral part of our communities. Support for transit and mobility justice was loud-and-clear across Washington this month and we are grateful for such strong leadership from those dedicated to moving us forward.

On @KingCountyMetro Route 255 after cheering on @kirklandgov proclaiming June #RideTransitMonth! As a transit riding kid growing up in the 425 I spent a lot of time at the Kirkland TC, so this is extra special for me. Thank you Kirkland for building a transit rich future for all! pic.twitter.com/Ug812GpBY1— Alex Hudson (@Ersilians) June 22, 2022

Ride Transit Month pledgeRide Transit Month began with a pledge asking Washingtonians to commit to riding transit at least five times in June. The response was astonishing! More than 350 people from 54 cities across Washington, 5 other states, and 3 other countries (wow!!) pledged to ride.
Community eventsTransportation Choices Coalition created four events during Ride Transit Month to give our community of riders and advocates a way to come together. Here’s a look back at all of them. Thank you to everyone who joined us!
We hosted a hybrid panel discussion about the future of commute titled, “Transit Talk: Beyond the 9-to-5 Commute” along with Commute Seattle and the support of Expedia Group.
