Pierce Trips is hosting the Love to Ride campaign this February, celebrating those who are passionate about their smart commute. To participate, all you need to do is take a smart commute to work for six or more days Feb. 1 – 29.

What counts as a smart trip? Carpooling, vanpooling, riding the bus or Sounder train, bicycling, walking, working from home or a compressed work week schedule all count.
