The Interurban Trail is 14 miles long and stretches from Tukwila to Pacific. It is not only used for exercise. The trail connects several towns and is used by cyclists and walkers to commute to work. One of the many benefits of commuting to work on the trail is maintaining a healthy lifestyle. A healthy individual can save a great deal of money because:
- Productivity at work increases
- The cost of out-of-pocket healthcare decreases
- Employer healthcare spending decreases
- Absenteeism at work decreases
Even just walking a few miles on the trail a few days a week can make a difference. In addition to the money-saving benefits, you also get the benefits of being outdoors and lower risk of heart disease.
