Fairpark Embraces SmartTrips
Last Friday, Salt Lake City Mayor Ralph Becker, Councilmember Stan Penfold, community members and the news media came together to celebrate the launch of the 2013 SmartTrips program in the Fairpark neighborhood.
FOX 13’s Ashton Goodell put together a fantastic story about SmartTrips, watch the video.
The first SmartTrips newsletter (PDF) went out last week to roughly 1700 households in the neighborhood. The newsletter included an order form offering customized information, resources and freebies to make it easier for residents to drive less this summer.
Sunday marked the official opening of the new Airport TRAX line, with community celebrations and free rides on Saturday. The line is now up and running every 15 minutes on the Green Line (transfers available at all downtown stops from the Blue and Red TRAX lines).
The Fairpark neighborhood is embracing the new TRAX line and North Temple “Complete Street” with vehicle lanes, transit, bike lanes and enhanced pedestrian access, making it the perfect neighborhood for SmartTrips 2013! Learn more. SmartTrips is also on Facebook!
