What's a Smart Trip?
A Smart Trip is any trip you make by walking, bicycling, sharing a ride or riding the bus, instead of driving alone. In other words, a Smart Trip eliminates a car trip. Riding a bicycle isn’t always a Smart Trip. Sometimes, it’s just pure fun. We’re 100% in favor of fun! And while you’re out joy-riding, we hope you discover pleasant ways to ride across town for your future Smart Trips.
