30th Annual Smart Commute Week

June 3 June 7

Smart Commute Week is an annual celebration held during the first full week of June. The purpose of Smart Commute Week is to promote alternative forms of transportation and to educate area residents of the benefits of a smart commute.

Join us for events promoting cycling, walking, taking the bus and carpooling. Free daily breakfasts are hosted at various locations around town for smart commuters. Every year community members challenge each other to a friendly competition known as the Commuter Cup Challenge. The Challenge is open to ALL and totally FREE to participate. Click below to register and learn more about the Commuter Cup Challenge.

All breakfasts are scheduled from 7am-9am and are free to all Smart Commuters. Seriously! All you have to do is smart commute. 

You don’t have to sign up for the smart commute challenge to enjoy the free daily breakfast, but the more the merrier AND when you sign up you are eligible for sweet swag and prizes from our sponsors!

Custom trophies will be awarded to challenge teams with the highest scores at the awards ceremony breakfast. Bonus points will be used as tiebreakers and for a chance to win additional prizes (must be present to win).
