What We Do


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:

  • Promote the use of sustainable transportation options for all trips, with a focus on changing the behavior of area residents and employees.
  • Educate the public and public officials about the need for investing in transportation choices, such as improved transit service and facilities, new bicycle routes and trails, and improved conditions for pedestrians.
  • Work toward development and zoning that promotes more transit use, bicycling, and walking, and less use of single occupant vehicles.

St. Paul Smart Trips has met the Standard of Excellence and is recognized as one of the Best Workplaces for Commuters.
