TRIP-to-Work Program

The Transit Rider Incentive Program (TRIP) provides affordable public transportation services to employees working in the South I-25 Urban Corridor of Denver, Colorado. The South I-25 Urban Corridor Transportation Management Association, a coalition of local governments and business groups within the South I-25 Corridor, partnered with the Denver Regional Transportation District to discount monthly light-rail, bus, and "Call-n-Ride" passes that provide employees with a low-cost alternative to driving to work.

Walk There!

Portland's Walk There! program, developed by Metro, promotes walking as a healthy transportation option. The Walk There! guidebook highlights 50 walking routes in the Portland metropolitan region and enhances access for people with disabilities by including detailed information about each route's distance, difficulty, terrain, and incline. Metro distributed the guidebook through medical clinics around the region.
