Salmon Friendly Trips Passport Campaign
Salmon Friendly Trips is coordinating a local campaign to recognize and reward Salmon Friendly Trips to and from Issaquah’s Central, Olde Town and Highlands business districts. 

How do I participate as a local business with Salmon Friendly Trips?

  1. Sign-up with us to be a participating business.
  2. Train staff on a few talking points about transportation for engagement with customers.
  3. Be featured in our program’s passports where customers are encouraged to visit your establishment using a salmon-friendly mode of transportation to collect stamps for prizes.
  4. Give stamps to qualifying customers and educate them about salmon-friendly travel.
  5. Host a #SalmonFriendlyTrips display for customers to snap selfies and share journeys.
  6. Consider donating an irresistible prize for our end-of-campaign drawing. 

What are the benefits?

Great question! 

As a participating business, you’ll be featured in our passports as one of our Salmon Friendly Trips businesses. This means free publicity and building a stronger presence with your local community. Not to mention, you’ll also have the chance to win prizes like Fitbits, REI gift cards, ORCA cards, bike racks and lunch with the Mayor! 

Ongoing Employee Support for Salmon Friendly Trips
Employers can customize management of employee trip reduction efforts and benefit by linking to the Salmon Friendly Trips network. Contact us to join the network — and we can help set you up! Issaquah employers are eligible for:

  • Quarterly free REI gift cards and reusable high-quality Salmon Friendly Trips water bottles to be used for incentives and drawings to encourage employees to try alternatives to driving alone.
  • One-on-one training on how to use the Salmon Friendly Trips site. Employers can pull reports on CO2 emissions, trips logging, money saved, non-drive-alone miles logged and track their employees’ progress.

Commute Trip Reduction Law (CTR)

The state's Commute Trip Reduction Law (CTR) requires affected employers to encourage employees to find alternatives to drive-alone commuting. 

The law was incorporated into the state's 1991 Clean Air Act to improve air quality, reduce traffic congestion and reduce energy consumption. The City of Issaquah partners with King County Metro to provide additional support to employers.

Together the City, King County Metro and Washington State Department of Transportation are working hard to provide alternatives to driving alone. The City hosts a Salmon Friendly Trips Network in order to help business leaders connect employees to find rideshare solutions and to develop a Salmon Friendly Trips culture in Issaquah.

Here are some Issaquah businesses that are part of the Salmon Friendly Trips Network: 
  • City of Issaquah
  • Costco/Costco Travel
  • King County Library
  • Microsoft
  • NAES
  • SanMar
  • Siemens
  • Swedish/Issaquah
