The TPO, I Bike KNX and Smart Trips will all benefit from the addition of our newest AmeriCorps Intern. Hannah Kitterman, a recent UT-Knoxville graduate, joined us in August and is already hard at work!
Pellissippi State Community College has renewed its gold level sponsorship with Smart Trips. Their commitment to sustainability is evident at all of their campuses, and an ongoing relationship with Smart Trips fits right in to their Sustainable Campus Initiative.
From Oct. 1 to Dec. 31, Smart Trips conducted a Cash for Commuters challenge to invite new members and lapsed members of the program to consider alternatives to driving alone in exchange for a cash prize. Instead of driving alone to work, run errands or go on social outings, participants were asked to carpool, take the bus, ride their bike, work from home, walk or work a flex schedule.
