I’m an Employer. How Do I Get Involved?

1. Sign up to be a participating Smart Trips employer

Email the Smart Trips office or call us at (865) 215-2916.

2. Tell your employees about Smart Trips commuting options

We’ll come to your worksite and talk to your employees about the Smart Trips program and the perks that come with it. We’ll also help them find commuting options that will work for them and tell them how to register for the Smart Trips program.

3. Save money

IRS tax code allows companies to offer employees pre-tax benefits for public transportation and related parking. Smart Trips doesn’t offer tax advice, but we can lead you to information that can save employers and employees money.
