Smart Trips Austin launches 2019 program

Monday, June 24, 2019 by Tai Moses

Smart Trips Austin 2019, a partnership between the city and Capital Metro, has a simple-sounding goal: to help Austinites get around town without using their personal vehicles. This year’s program focuses on several East Austin neighborhoods and includes a digital toolkit to help people find the transportation solution that best fits their lifestyle, whether it’s walking, cycling, carpooling, taking the bus, or some other way to avoid sitting in traffic. Free events like organized strolls to music festivals make car-free mobility a fun way to stay healthy, while discounts and bus passes sweeten the deal considerably.
