Smart Commute TC is a program that promotes the use of alternative forms of transportation. We collaborate with local businesses, governments and non-profit organizations to develop multi-modal infrastructure for active and healthy lifestyles. Collectively we strive to educate the community through workshops and special events and encourage smart commuting year round.

Smart Commute Week

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. Smart commuting includes many benefits for your health, for the environment, for the community and for your pocketbook.

The week consists of 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. Register your team and rack up points to win prizes with every smart commute trip you make. Learn more about Smart Commute Week here.

Grandview Parkway Construction Bike & Ped Detour

The MDOT reconstruction of Grandview Parkway is underway. MDOT has many different phases of the project with non-motorized detours changing regularly. The detour map below is our suggested bike/ped route from March through May. There may be some closures and/or barriers for construction vehicles and equipment along the TART at times. Use caution.

To avoid vehicular traffic and delays, we encourage everyone to smart commute when possible. Below are a few designated smart lots. Park your vehicle at any of these locations and then bike, walk, or take BATA to your destination.

BATA will be adjusting routes to accommodate construction as well. You can find their routes and schedules here.
