To participate in the Getting Started Contest, City of Austin employees must enroll in the contest and log four (4) sustainable commute trips between Sept. 3-16, 2019. Read the contest rules for contest eligibility and participation questions, or contact SmartCommute@AustinTexas.gov for more information.
In 2017, Smart Commute Rewards drew interest from organizations coast-to-coast, including the City of Santa Monica, CA; City of San Jose, CA; City of Hillsboro, OR; City of San Antonio, TX; City of Nashville, TN; City of Raleigh, NC; Pittsburgh PA’s Downtown Partnership, and New York City’s Department of Transportation.
In November 2017, the Capital Area Council of Governments (CAPCOG) celebrated the organizations and individuals who have made significant contributions to the region’s air quality at the Air Central Texas Awards. Austin Transportation received the 2017 Air Central Texas Public Sector Award for the Smart Commute Rewards program.
