Log Your SmartTrips and Win Prizes!


Are you looking for motivation to hop on the bus instead of driving to work? 

Perhaps you need a little extra incentive to take the bike out of the garage Monday morning (brrrrrr - it sure has been cold of late)?

Or maybe you just want someone to say, "good job" for sticking with your smart commute during these extended winter days.

You got it. 

Every time you enter a "smart trip" in the Drive Less Trip Diary you've got a chance to win great prizes.  We'll be choosing another three winners on April 1st (no foolin'!). 

All you need to do is log in to the Trip Diary, click a couple of buttons, and you'll be entered to win.  If you haven't signed up yet do it now to be eligible for the next round of great prizes.

It only takes a minute - and remember to select the "SmartTrips Downtown" program so we can reward you for your smart trips!

Here are March's winners:

Michael will have plenty of time to reap the rewards from his $50 Powell's Books gift card while sharing the ride on I-5 in his Salem-to-Portland Vanpool.  Thanks for ridesharing Michael!



Heather is a transit rock star!  She won $50 at REI for logging all those trips.  Keep rocking the bus, Heather!


David (not pictured) is in the saddle again!  He's logged over 200 miles of bike commuting power in the trip diary.  David can use his $50 gift card at Waterfront Bike for accessories, rentals, or even towards a new bike! 


Make sure you log your smart trips to be eligible for the April 1st drawing!

Took my two grandkids on the Max to visit the zoo and downtown. We had a blast, and no worries in finding a parking place. It was easy and fun.

I've been logging my trips since last July. Do I need to do something different or special now? I like being able to use this tool!

Good question, Erin. As long as you have selected "SmartTrips Downtown" in your account information, you are eligible for the drawings. Keep logging those trips!
