Wrapping Up The 2019 Smart Trips Eastside Program

We are now in the final week of our 2019 Smart Trips Program. The end of this year’s program coincides with the East Austin Studio Tour, so last weekend Smart Trips led both a bike ride and transit adventure through the Studio Tour. With nearly 40 people, this past Saturday’s ride was our largest group yet! This Sunday we will host our final Smart Trips event of 2019, which will be another of the East Austin Studio Bike Tour.

In June our program launched with the goal of empowering Austinites to explore more sustainable methods of transportation. By giving Austinites the tools try new ways of getting around we here at the Smart Trips team hope to reduce congestion on Austin roads, lower greenhouse gas admissions, and help people have a happier and healthier commute.

over the past 6 months of our program, more than 1200 Austinites have signed up for our E-Toolkit, which features the most up to date bike routes in Austin, as well as bicycle safety tips, bus routes, carpool matching, scooter promotional codes, transit passes, bike share passes, and more! Signing up for the Smart Trips toolkit is a great first step for those who are on the fence about making a change in their daily commute.

This Saturday will be the final day to sign up for our 2019 Smart Trips E-Toolkit.  Maybe you want to ride the bus, but don’t know the stops, route, and connections in your area? We gotcha covered! Maybe you want to bike to work a couple of times a week, but don’t know a safe route? Our toolkit can help!

To everyone who has signed up for the 2019 E – Toolkit, and attended our Smart Trips 2019 events, thank you! If you have been wanted to check out our program now is the time!
