The smarttrips program provides a fun, interactive, way for residents to explore transportation options including walking, biking, busing, rolling, and carpooling. The program focuses on one neighborhood at a time, offering free materials and fun events to residents. Whether residents want to walk, bike, bus, or roll – smarttrips delivers transportation information and resources right to their door to make it easier.
The City of Springfield delivered a smarttrips program in the Gateway in the spring of 2023. Gateway area residents received a postcard in the mail inviting their household to participate in the program. All households participating in the smarttrips program received free kits full of educational materials, free swag, and prizes. Residents were encouraged to try a new transportation mode, or increase their current trips taken by walking, biking, busing, rolling, and carpooling.
