Transportation

Transportation leads to 40% of Oregon’s carbon emissions. You can help significantly reduce vehicle miles traveled by increasing active forms of transportation — walking, bicycling and taking transit — which produces both employee health and economic benefits. Plus, commute benefits are tax-free for your employees and your business.

SmartTrips provides a range of free sustainable transportation services for employers and individual commuters including:

  • Sustainable transportation resources (bike/walk maps, transit information, bike parking, carpool matching, and more).
