Metro launches our newest Partner in Transit, the Seattle Art Museum [external link]. The Seattle Art Museum's three locations, Seattle Art Museum Downtown, the Seattle Asian Art Museum and the Olympic Sculpture Park are all conveniently located to be accessible by transit, biking and walking. SAM is committed to pursuing sustainability in their operation and programs, and have organized the SAM Goes Green effort and hired and an environmental steward to oversee their environmental initiatives. The Partners in Transit program with SAM encourages members and visitors to 'lower their carbon footprint while seeing great art'. Metro applauds the Seattle Art Museum for its commitment to public transportation and for bringing great art to our region.
The Partners in Transit program is a new way for Metro to work with organizations that share our commitment to sustainable living. Partners in Transit brings your customers the information they need to explore how they can get around their community while leaving their car behind. The program is geared to helping individuals think about every trip they make, and finding the ones that are easy to change from driving to taking the bus, walking, biking or sharing a ride.
Partners in Transit promotes healthy transportation through communications with Partner members, shoppers, and/or affiliates. The Partners provide information and incentives to encourage the use of sustainable transportation as well as touching individuals through more traditional advertising and promotion.
