Intern with SmartTrips SLC!

SmartTrips Intern – Salt Lake City Division of Sustainability

Deliveries_FacebookSLCgreen is recruiting a summer intern team for the SmartTrips program!

SmartTrips Salt Lake City is a neighborhood-based program that encourages active and public transportation through collaborative community events, educational newsletters and free kits delivered by bicycle.

SmartTrips is modeled after similar efforts in Portland, Oregon and other communities, which have all successfully reduced vehicle trips and emissions among participants.

This year SmartTrips is visiting Sugar House and the neighborhoods along the recently launched S-Line streetcar. Learn more here:  www.smarttripsslc.com.
