St. Paul Smart Trips is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that improves access and mobility for those who travel in and around St. Paul.
We envision a St. Paul where sustainable transportation is the safe and easy choice. We collaborate with individuals, organizations and government to:
Promotethe use of sustainable transportation options for all trips, with a focus on changing the behavior of area residents and employees.
Educatethe public and public officials about the need for investment in transportation choices, such as improved transit service and facilities, new bicycle routes and trails, and improved conditions for pedestrians.
Worktoward development and zoning that promotes more transit use, bicycling, and walking, and less use of single occupant vehicles.
St. Paul Walks St. Paul Walks is a city-wide pedestrian safety campaign comprised of a coalition of volunteers from across Saint Paul focusing on getting drivers to slow down for pedestrians, specifically at intersections, whether they are marked or unmarked.
St. Paul Women on Bikes
St. Paul Women on Bikes (WOB) envisions that St. Paul will be a place where bicycling is a safe, easy transportation and recreation option for individuals and families. The healthy choice will be the easy choice. There will be a welcoming community of women cyclists who encourage each other as well as positive policy and infrastructure changes.
St. Paul Bike/Pedestrian Bridges Work Group
Smart Trips created an adhoc group to develop a vision for how freeway crossings in St. Paul should look and function for bicyclists and pedestrians. The group's efforts led to the design and pilot of a Complete Bridges Survey Tool which was tested on two St. Paul bridges. Our hope is that insight gathered through application of the survey tool will help inform engineers and designers about the needs of non-motorized users. The pilot survey results and survey tool are available for download. Aldine Street Bridge- Complete Bridges survey report Snelling Avenue Bridge - Complete
