Salmon Friendly Trips
Bike to Work Day

Welcome 
We encourage all residents, employees, employers and visitors to try more salmon-friendly travel options, including carpool, vanpool, transit, biking, walking, and teleworking whenever possible! Changing just one or two trips a week is a small change that can still make a big difference!   

Why Salmon?   
Salmon have a special presence in Issaquah. By having a salmon as our mascot, we want everyone in the community to think about the connection between transportation choices and the impacts those choices have on our environment, which is critical to the health of our salmon.   

Choosing a Salmon Friendly Trip creates a more sustainable environment for all of us — and we're here to help you make your choice!   

Community Engagement 
And to help make that choice even more fun—we launched a resident engagement campaign from fall 2018 to spring 2019 to recognize and reward Salmon Friendly Trips to and from Issaquah’s Central, Olde Town, and Highlands business districts.   

How do I participate? 
  1. Look for your Salmon Friendly Trips Passport in the mail or pick one up from participating businesses or Issaquah City Hall. Click here to send us an email and request one via mail.
