SmartTrips for New Movers: The Right Time for Behavior Change
Presented by Sarah Goforth, PBOT Active Transportation and Safety Division
Since 2014 Portland SmartTrips has provided active transportation information to over 73,000 new mover households. Capitalizing on an influential time when movers are already in a state of change, SmartTrips encourages new movers to consider all of their transportation options. As a result, program participants report they are walking, biking, and taking transit more than prior to moving. In fact, they’re driving 7% less for both commute and non-commute trips. Join us for a rich storytelling event told through data, charts, and travel behavior analysis.
Sarah Goforth works for PBOT on the Portland SmartTrips program. She is one of three bicycle delivery staffers, and is also responsible for conducting travel surveys and data analysis. When she’s not in the saddle or crunching numbers, she’s tending her vegetable garden, jumping double dutch jump rope, and most likely still riding her bike. She lives up to her “go forth” name.
