** Pierce Trips was able to connect Cheyanne with the Virginia Mason Franciscan Health Employee Transportation Coordinator. Virginia Mason Franciscan Health offers employees $3/day for logging their sustainable commute trips on the Pierce Trips calendar. ORCA cards with $10 loaded on it are also available to new transit users. For more information, contact the Employee Transportation Coordinator Trudy Sprinkle at **
