SmartTrips is an individualized marketing program that “lets employees who work in downtown Portland choose customized transportation information and incentives.” Or in other words, it gives people the encouragement and education they need to get out of their cars and onto public transit, carpools, bikes, and so on.
Participants in this program can get free goodies after taking an online survey. They can also mail in this pledge form and be entered into a monthly prize drawing.
NOTE: At BikePortland, we love your comments. We love them so much that we devote many hours every week to read them and make sure they are productive, inclusive, and supportive (heck, sometimes we even fix your typos!). That doesn't mean you can't disagree with someone. It means you must do it with tact and respect. This is our business and we do not tolerate mean commenters who add nothing of value to the discussion. Unfortunately, we are not robots and we don't always catch everything. You can help by notifying us if you see inappropriate comments. Thanks! — Jonathan and Michael
