Smart Commute Week

There’s more than one way to beat traffic

Discover your commuting options

During our annual Smart Commute Week we encourage solo drivers to discover more sustainable commuting options such as transit, walking, biking, teleworking and carpooling.

Smart Commute Week 2013

The third annual Smart Commute Week campaign has wrapped up and the results are in. Close to 1,500 people atSmart Commute workplaces participated this year by trying more sustainable travel modes and recording the information either online or using paper diaries. We were thrilled to see that 13% of this year’s participants switched from driving alone to a more sustainable option.
