About Us

SmartTrips Ithaca encourages Ithacans (like you!) take steps to use healthier, greener, and more enjoyable ways to get around town. We provide the resources and personal support you need to begin using all the transportation options available to you, whether that's a bike, TCAT, or Ithaca Carshare.

Our summer 2016 program has just ended for the season and we hope to restart next year in a neighborhood near you. In the meantime, you can learn about how the SmartTrips Ithaca program worked for Downtown Ithaca residents this past summer.
