Occupation: Roadway Designer
Employer: CH2M HILL
Gets around by: Walking, LINK Light Rail
Where do you live and where do you work?
I live at the east edge of the Hilltop neighborhood, just above UWT. I work at CH2M HILL on 9th Street and Pacific Ave.
How do you get there?
I usually walk to work, even it’s cold or drizzly. If it’s pouring rain, I either hitch a ride or drive and park at Tacoma Dome Station and take the Tacoma LINK to work.
How does it all add up?
I save about $100 a year in gas and car maintenance. I also save about 40 hours a year by walking. That’s time I can spend working, which for me is a lot of extra $ each month!
What’s in it for you?
There’s so much in it for me! I save money and time. I get to exercise daily without even trying. I get to know my neighbors and my neighborhood. I get to slow down and literally smell the roses on the way.
