Salmon Friendly Trips is Issaquah's portal to regional ridematching and incentives. Each month, 25 lucky winners traveling to or from Issaquah earn a $25 REI gift card just for taking Salmon Friendly Trips!
Log eight days of non-drive-alone travel (carpool, vanpool, bus, bike, walk, compressed work week or telework) in a calendar month and you'll be entered into this monthly drawing. Winners will be notified via email after the fifth of the month following qualification, and will be asked to both request and claim their rewards within 30 days from the date of approval.

The City of Issaquah chose salmon as our mascot to further educate commuters about the connection between pollution caused by transportation choices and the impact those choices have on our environmental quality of life. Choosing a Salmon Friendly Trip reduces traffic, can save you money and creates a more sustainable environment for all of us!
