Smart Commute

Go Green, Get Active

Smart Commute is a community-wide celebration encouraging everyone to try a healthier, greener, and cheaper way to get to your destination.

Each summer, hundreds of people in Jackson are walking, biking and riding transit to get to work or other destinations.  Smart Commute allows you to track your own progress or area businesses can sign up for our Corporate Challenge for a little friendly competition.

Smart Commute 2014 kicks off Friday, May 16th

Events are planned for the third Friday of each month:

  • May 16th - Morning Meet-ups, Rally Ride & Meet the Bus
  • June 20th - Paddle to Work & the Downtown Dog Walk
  • July 18th - Falling Water Trail Commute & the High Heel Bike Ride
  • August 15th - A City Tour & the Smart Commute Awards 

Click on the FOR COMMUTERS tab to learn more about registering for the program or click on the CORPORATE CHALLENGE tab to learn more about our friendly corporate challenge.

As if arriving to your destination alert, energized, and ready for your day was not enough, wearing your Smart Commute t-shirt on the third Friday of every month (May through August) will earn you deals around town:

  • 10% off bike accessories and parts at P&T Fitness
  • 10% off at Walt's Health Food & Specialty store
  • Ride the city bus for free 


Tremendous thanks to all the sponsors who make Smart Commute possible, including this year's title sponsor CP Federal Credit Union, who also happens to be a past Corporate Challenge Champion!
