SmartTrips Pleasanton Program Begins This Spring!

 

The SmartTrips Pleasanton team is in the neighborhood to help people try new ways of getting around, including riding the bus, carpooling, biking and walking instead of driving alone.

Our team is meeting with residents at their doorstep— and are in the process of visiting 4,000 households in proximity to the Wheels 10R route. If you missed our TA team and received a door hanger for us, and would still like to participate in the program to received free transportation resources, please email Dorthy.Ramirez@sdgworld.net with the following information:

  • Your name
  • Your full street address
  • (Optional) Your phone numbers/email so that we can follow up with you to make sure you have received your resources

SmartTrips team members wear a uniform and photo ID and will never ask to enter a resident’s household. Taking a personalized door-to-door approach, the SmartTrips team will provide information and incentives for participants including transit schedules, a neighborhood map, a tote bag, and a Clipper Card with loaded value.

This project will be closely monitored to identify the impact on how residents travel.  Similar projects elsewhere have had great success, and typically see reductions in drive-alone travel of 5-15% by residents taking part, helping to tackle local traffic problems and reducing the environmental impacts of car trips.

SmartTrips Pleasanton is a way to connect communities with rewarding benefits, and it will demonstrate a commitment to transportation choices for everyone. Help spread the word, and look for the SmartTrips team around Pleasanton!
