Local community college, Pellissippi State, has an excellent reputation. Professors, advisors, and administrators are known for their hands-on mentorship of each student enrolled. Smart Trips staff say this dynamic is evident on campus.
Scripps Networks Interactive was the first to join a new Smart Trips sponsor project in December. The company, which has a large corporate headquarters located in west Knoxville, is a major supporter of green commute modes. The year they joined Smart Trips, they were the top employer in our annual Commuter Challenge because of how many participants signed on. Clean commuting is part of the culture at Scripps.
