Smart Trips Austin

Smart Trips Austin is a local group trying to promote alternative modes of transport in Austin. They are specifically targeting South Austin (Zilker, Bouldin, Travis Heights) for the next few months. The events listed below are from their monthly newsletter. Lots of great fun ways to try walking, biking and bus riding over the holiday season!

Howdy Felicity,

The Smart Trips Austin team is having a blast meeting you and your neighbors. We’ve been delivering Toolkits, taking walking tours, jumping on transit adventures and going on fun bike rides! We’re excited to announce MORE of these activities for December.

Looking for family-friendly holiday events? Want to ride your bike or walk in the beautiful Texas winter weather? Make sure to check out our calendar of events below.
