Be Part of "How We Move" with Link Transit

Early bird Chelan commuters are in for a treat! Link Transit staff will offer up donuts, coffee and limited edition t-shirts from 5:45-7:30 AM Tuesday, April 23 at the bus stop across from Chelan City Hall. A photographer and writer will be on hand to collect commuter (or you could say transit-related testimonials) stories.

"How we Move" is part of the "Get On Board" campaign spearheaded by the American Public Transportation Association (APTA).

"This effort by APTA is to highlight the many benefits public transit brings to communities," said Link Marketing Coordinator Eric West. "The hope is that highlighting public transit locally will increase awareness and support among riders, non-riders, elected officials and stakeholders. Hundreds of transit systems all over the nation will be holding events. While the national campaign is just one day, Link staff will be visiting communities in its service area all week long. We encourage Chelan bus commuters to join us April 23 to share their experiences with us."

Part of Link's 2019 outreach effort is to produce a series of video stories showcasing the experiences of bus commuters in Chelan and Douglas counties. The series is titled "How We Move."

"The intent of this work is to increase awareness within our communities of the value and benefit public transit provides," West said. "We want to collect the experiences of as many riders as possible so we can fully tell the story of how public transit positively impacts people."

Link Transit is the public transportation provider for Chelan and Douglas counties, operating fixed route service to 17 communities across the region, including commuter service between Chelan and Wenatchee starting at 5:45 AM.
