2015 Smart Trips: North Austin

Smart Trips started in North Central Austin thanks to a grant from the American Planning Association’s Plan4Health initiative supported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). This program focused resources in the area defined by US 183 to the south, Braker to the north, Metric to the west and Cameron/Dessau to the east. The focus of this pilot program was to improve public health by increasing access to physical activity and healthy food. A complimentary food planning effort took place alongside the Smart Trips program, led by the Office of Sustainability.

With health as the primary driver, the goals of the pilot program were to:

  1. Increase awareness of active transportation choices;
  2. Increase physical activity; and
  3. Increase positive attitudes towards use of active transportation.
